In 2022 the Joint Air & Space Power Conference will focus on Enhancing NATO Air & Space Power in an Age of Global Competition and will be held from 11 to 13 October 2022 at the Congress Centre Essen, Germany.
Since its establishment in 2005, the Joint Air Power Competence Centre has been NATO’s catalyst for the improvement and transformation of Joint Air and Space Power, providing advice to senior leaders and solutions to challenges facing our Alliance. Our annual Joint Air and Space Power Conference has become an esteemed venue for senior leaders and experts to discuss and debate issues affecting Joint Air and Space capabilities and interoperability with an eye on strengthening assurance, deterrence and defence. It provides a unique venue for you to help inform and shape the thinking of Joint Air and Space practitioners from across NATO, the European Union and other international partners.
At the upcoming Madrid Summit, NATO nations will agree to a new Strategic Concept that will define the approach of the Alliance to maintain peace and security, drive NATO’s strategic adaptation and guide its future political and military development. It will thus provide overarching guidance for NATO’s political activities and decision-making on military capabilities, structures and processes.
The Joint Air and Space Power Conference 2022 will explore how NATO should further proceed on its path to address the challenges to security and enhance NATO Air and Space Power in face of global, systemic competition. NATO will have to meet the requirements of a multi-faceted, demanding environment to remain a credible Alliance for the defence of its members and the shared values of our free and democratic societies.
