The participation of Cypriot small- and medium-sized enterprises in five proposals of the European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP) of the European Commission is a great success for the Cypriot Defence Industry. These proposals have provided a total of € 40 million in funding.

According to the Ministry of Defence, the program will fund a total of 16 proposals involving 180 different entities. The total funding of the program by the European Commission will amount to 200 million euros. Particularly important is the fact that Cyprus ranked first with 95% of companies participating.

The success of Cypriot companies highlights the fact that Cyprus can make a significant contribution to the development of European defence capabilities. The participation of the companies will contribute to the development of domestic defence research, innovation and technology while at the same time it will create new job opportunities.
