On the 20th and 21st of May 2019 Sapienza’s Managing Director, Andrea Bennetti, and Defence & Security Client Relationship Manager, Alessandro Niglia, attended the NCI Agency’s annual industry conference held in Oslo, Norway. This was the third year that Sapienza attended NATO’s flagship event. The conference was organised in cooperation with AFCEA Europe and Norway’s Ministry of Defence, and brought together more than 700 senior government, military, and industry leaders.
This year, NITEC focused on advancing technological solutions and business practices to strengthen NATO operations from the South to the High North. More specifically, the advancement of communications within the challenging region of the High North was discussed, in the scope of establishing security and stability across the area, as well as across all 29 NATO Nations. Resource conservation and sustainability were also brought to attention as important points of discussion.
Sapienza’s engagement with the NCIA was fruitful, as our team had the chance to discuss the role of Sapienza within the NCIA activities and present new capacities within the Defence & Security sectors. This year’s attendance was a great opportunity for Sapienza to continue multilateral cooperation with fellows and peers, as well as representatives of both medium and large enterprises.
Our Relationship Manager Alessandro Niglia stated about the event:
The framework of NITEC19 allowed us to get a glimpse of how the NCIA and the Alliance are preparing to face geopolitical challenges from Russia and China by introducing new technological innovations from Start Ups and Small Medium Enterprises, while at the same time stressing out the importance of strengthening military and civilian cooperation
Sapienza is looking forward to another constructive attendance in 2020, and, as always, is ready to engage with the latest advancements within the ever-changing landscape of the Defence & Security industry.
