The FEINDEF is considered as one of the most important exhibitions in the European defense event calendar 2023. It will be attended by over 450 exhibitors from 20 countries coming from the international defense and security industries.

The event will be attended by over 100 foreign delegations including representatives from the armed forces, government, and several ministries of defense.

FEINDEF is the reference forum that encompasses the defense and security sector in Spain, to innovate, coopera­te internationally and share knowledge between companies, institutions, universities, and other organisms, as a global response to security.

While the main purpose of this exhibition is to promote the capabilities of the defense and security industry, it will also provide a meeting place where entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, military and government officials can share knowledge, experiences and exchange ideas on the latest technological trends in their field.

FEINDEF 23 will be an opportunity to access the new European defense market, reinforcing the implementation of initiatives in the fields of collaborative research, capability development, boosting defense investment and the creation of the Single European Defense Market. In addition, FEINDEF 23 will promote its commitment to technical and scientific research and innovation as a driver of economic and technological development and social integration.

FEINDEF also has several conferences geared toward a broad and multidisciplinary audience. Entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, universities, public research bodies, professionals from the Public Administration, industry, the Armed Forces and the State Security Forces as well as Spanish and international public and private organizations, can all share information, knowledge and experiences and exchange ideas on the latest technological trends in a sector that leads the way in innovation and the generation of transversal knowledge across sectors. 

Aware of the importance of startups for the economic and social development of our country, the FEINDEF Foundation introduces in the 2023 edition of this reference event of Defense and Security in our country, a space dedicated exclusively to innovation and entrepreneurship in this field.

Innova for Def & Sec is born as an embryo of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Defense and Security so necessary in our sector and with a clear vocation to support young talent. It is conceived to become a national and international benchmark in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship for "dual-use" solutions and technologies and an annual meeting point for entrepreneurs and innovative companies interested in the Defense and Security market.
