Industry Partnerships


Defence iQ works with the international defence community as a partner, bringing together both industry and end users at its events and via its digital platform and publications to engender the cross-fertilization of ideas and strengthen relationships between the private and public sectors.

Change and Complexity in the Defence Industry

NATO nations are trying to cultivating new cultures of innovation in defence and investing in the wide-scale modernization of their capabilities. These changes are underpinned by a desire to keep pace with technological change and become agile, empowered technological actors in the digital age, able to rapidly identify and exploit new capabilities for joint all-domain operations against a backdrop of rapidly evolving global threats.

Of course, this desire to modernise has significant implications for industry. New government industrial frameworks emphasize the need to adopt more modern, more effective commercial models to deliver capabilities at speed and at scale, and funding has been allocated to set up innovation accelerators to provide industry with more touchpoints to government officials and delivery agents.  

Designing a Digital Strategy for Industry

Defence iQ’s global defence events, digital platform and publications provide prime contractors, traditional and non-traditional defence companies, SMEs and start-ups with another vital touchpoint from which to educate and inform our global network of military end users and government about their strategic vision, new concepts, capabilities, and future plans.

We design tailored short to long-term partnership strategies for the Defence Enterprise, including year-long strategic engagement with the market via a series of whitepapers, position papers and interviews, as well as contributions to our major defence conferences, with pre, onsite and post-show follow ups with customers.
