Innova for Def & Sec was born as an embryo of the Defence and Security entrepreneurial ecosystem so necessary in our sector and with a clear vocation to support young talent. It is conceived to become a national and international benchmark in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship for “dual-use” solutions and technologies and an annual meeting point for entrepreneurs and innovative companies interested in the Defence and Security market.
