"It is also clear that for the first time since we discuss defence cooperation, the Commission is ready to play its role to the full and to even consider putting EU funds, especially for research in defence. This is potentially a game changer as some people say." Elzbieta Bienkowska, Former EU Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs
"Collaboration and coordination among the community and intergovernmental tools are indispensable to provide effective support and incentives to defence cooperation." Jorge Domecq, Chief Executive, European Defence Agency
