The difficult security situation in Europe after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has made restoring military readiness and capacity an imperative for the UK, as exemplified by Operation Mobilise. However, change must come from more than just Defence and the Armed Forces; industrial strategy across Europe must account for both NATO’s enhanced strategic posture and the continued demand to provide support to Ukraine.

Integrating emerging capabilities, the implications of which have yet to be fully understood, while still getting the most out of people, is an ongoing challenge that initiatives such as the British Army’s Project Wavell seek to address. Meanwhile, the need to work with allies and partners and promote stability further afield remains as strong as ever.

Who Should Attend?

This two-day conference will bring together senior land and ground forces leaders, policymakers and experts from the industry and think tanks to discuss and debate the dangerous security challenges that are currently facing the UK and its allies.

As an independent organisation, RUSI provides trusted external analysis and a forum for robust and critical debate to develop a mutual understanding among the disparate stakeholders and disciplines so that these challenges can be addressed together.
