Conference of National Armaments Directors (CNAD)-sponsored Workshop on defence-critical Supply Chain Security to be held on 29 March 2023 from 14h00 to 16h00 (Brussels time/8:00am-10:00am Ottawa time) via WebEx. The workshop will be held at PUBLIC level.
Its key aim is for Allies, Invitees, and Industry, to share their national and industrial perspectives and approaches on addressing strategies for overcoming dependencies on strategic materials and other related supply chain vulnerabilities. The workshop will serve as a forum to discuss long-term efforts to bolster and safeguard the security and resilience in supply chains for Allied capability development and delivery. In this regard, participants will be invited to discuss potential opportunities and challenges for common approaches and multinational cooperation at an Alliance level.
Potential topics for this workshop could include, but are not limited to:
a. Measures for longer-term responsiveness to supply chain risks;
b. Ways to stimulate greater domestic and Allied outputs (e.g. on/Ally-shoring);
c. Innovative approaches (R&D on alternatives, recycling/reuse);
d. Application of new techniques to supply chain security (e.g. automation, block chain).
