EuroDefense network was created in 2001 bringing together national EuroDefense associations from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Portugal, Austria, Luxembourg, Greece, Hungary and Romania.
The main objective of Eurodefense is to deepen thinking on the concept of a European Security and Defense System and to create opportunities in this field for European meetings in order to analyze the vulnerabilities, threats and risks that Europe is now facing, as well as those that it will face in the future. Eurodefense network is aiming to foster the awareness of common interests and to develop a greater sense of European defense, which is already being set up and developed through an established methodology, enabling the national associations to work together in an efficient manner.
EuroDefense Presidency is rotated in turn, from the 1st January to the 31st of December, each year, by the President of the national association organizing the annual international EuroDefense meeting. Greek Association for Atlantic and European Cooperation as Eurodefense – Greece held the Presidency of EuroDefense in 2006 and organized 12th International EuroDefense meeting in Athens in November 2006.
