ELT Group reconfirms its leading role in the European arena. The European Commission (DG DEFIS - Defence Industries and Space) has in fact selected nine projects of the European Defence Funds (EDF) - Work Programme 2022, in which the company is involved.

ELT Group has always strongly believed in the objective set by European projects for the development of common defence capabilities with a continuous commitment since their inception through the PADR (Preliminary Actions Defence Research) and EDIDP (European Defence Industrial Development Programs) initiatives, preparatory to the current EDF phase. In this area, it has brought its expertise gained through years of activity and consolidated through major defence programmes such as Eurofighter Typhoon, FREMM, NH90, and Naval Law. ELT Group is also currently involved in the development of the future sixth-generation GCAP fighter.
