This third module, organised by the Institut des Hautes Études de Défense Nationale, brought together 12 high-level civilian and military participants representing several EU Member States, think-tanks, European Union institutions and the defence industry over two and a half days in Paris. Some fifteen French and European speakers took the floor on subjects such as the EU's strategic autonomy and its geopolitical role in the world, defence innovation and research, analysis of the changing threats to Europe and EU-NATO cooperation, leading to particularly fruitful exchanges on these crucial issues. This module will thus have contributed to the debate on the development of a common European strategic culture.
