Three weeks ahead of the December meeting of NATO heads of state and government, this event will serve as a public primer highlighting many of the top issues on the Alliance’s agenda. The discussions will focus on priorities for strengthening collective defense and deterrence in Europe and beyond, including progress on improving capabilities, readiness, and decision-making through the NATO Readiness Initiative and “four thirties”. The conference will also explore the Alliance’s broader agenda on the road to London, including the impact of emerging technology on Alliance priorities, space as a new area of operations, and how NATO is planning to address threats in the cyber domain.

Convening senior officials, military leaders, top experts, business executives, and media from across the Euro-Atlantic policy community, the conference will provide a unique platform to discuss critical issues for NATO at a time when the threats have never been more pressing.
