Projects

 

Currently 60 PESCO projects are being developed.

Each of the projects is carried forward by varying group of PESCO participating Member States (project members) and is coordinated by one or more PESCO participating Member States (project coordinators). The project members may agree among themselves to allow other participating Member States to join as a project member or to become observer to the project.

The projects that are being developed in the context of PESCO cover areas such as training, land, maritime, air, cyber, and joint enablers:
