Welcome to the Defence Forum
The global defence market is facing similar challenges to other sectors during the global downturn, but the British Defence Market is still the fifth largest by value. It is arguably the most sophisticated with the greatest degree of outsourcing and the most innovative contracting, partnering, experimentation, collaboration and acquisition mechanisms.
Industry consolidation is significant, often driven by innovation and technological development and the global nature of the market. Operations are treated as enterprises with shared risk and expertise. The Defence supply chain underpins this capability, and deserves specialist consideration and representation.
The Defence Forum provides a non-judgemental environment and mechanism for all Defence, actors, academia and wider commerce to engage, share best practice and promote the implementation of innovative ideas and concepts.
