Study on the impact on European Defence Technological and Industrial Base (EDTIB) of defence offsets requested by third countries

2013 - 2013

The study aims at analyzing offsets in the international defence market with a particular focus on European aerospace, defence and security industry. Through the study of 9 non-European countries, the objective is to identify consequences and risks posed by offsets in terms of technology transfer, security of supply, impact on related employment in the EU and the progressive growth of non-European competitors in the defence sector. Finally, the project intends to discuss possible measures to be taken at European level in order to address the offsets’ consequences and mitigate the related risks on European Defence Technological and Industrial Base (EDTIB). IAI is partner of the study that is coordinated by IRIS.
