Foster, train and connect the next generation of Europe’s Defense.

The EDN strives to build a strong network of students and young professionals, who share a passion for defense and security politics as well as for Europe. 

The objective is to create forward thinking concepts and studies, organize educational and stimulating events and ultimately build a platform for international exchange of ideas on a European level.

Advised by a pool experts and deciders (wise men) the EDN is aiming at developing the intercultural competencies and analytical thinking of its members from academia, industry as well as from the administration (politics and military). 

Accordingly, embedded in this network its members will contribute substantially to find solutions for Europe’s future defense and security challenges beyond individual national interest with a special focus on younger generations to ensure equality, diversity and perspective.
