European countries should continue to integrate their national assets in the NATO integrated air and missile defence, as well as seek cooperation for joint capability development in the EU framework.

The webinar “Missile Defence, Europe and Italy” will feature the presentation of a new IAI study titled “Europe’s missile defence and Italy: capabilities and cooperation”.
