“Practical Applications of Advanced Technologies for Enhancing Security and Defence Capabilities: Perspectives and Challenges for WB”4

The Euro-Atlantic Council of Macedonia in cooperation with the Atlantic Council of Bosnia & Herzegovina will host NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) entitled: “Practical Applications of Advanced Technologies for Enhancing Security and Defense Capabilities: Perspectives and Challenges for Western Balkans” supported by NATO Science for Peace Program (NATO SPS). The ARW will take place in Ohrid (Republic of North Macedonia) in March-April 2021 (possible slight changes because of the COVID-19 pandemic).

The primary objective of this ARW is to explore the primary applications of advanced technology (including AI and autonomous technology) for security and defence purposes, to raise the level of awareness and understanding among the key stakeholders regarding the practical potentials and main challenges of implementing advanced technology for purposes of strengthening the defence systems in Western Balkans, and to pitch the premises for the development of strategies for regional cooperation between public institutions, academia and private actors.

The ARW will be composed of presentations by experts in a form of lectures and discussion sessions conceptualized as workshop groups/round tables with a moderator. In this vein, the event will bring together renowned experts and pundits in technical and social sciences from NATO and NATO partner countries that will take participation as speakers and participants and will address the latest trends, as well as the technical, strategic and legal aspects of the new and innovative technology.

FORMAT OF THE EVENT: The programme is specifically designed to combine presentations by experts in a form of lectures and discussion sessions conceptualized as workshop groups or round tables with a moderator. This concept will apply to each topic.
