Traditionally, the Exhibition is accompanied by Industrial Forum, an event that aims to bring together Bulgarian Defence Industry, Scientific, Governmental and Non-governmental Institutions, in order to enhance the efforts and capabilities in support of investment, joint research and development of defence equipment and technologies.
During ‘Hemus 2018’ the topic of the Industrial Forum was "European Defence Industrial Development Program (EDIDP) and the European Defence Fund (EDF) and the prospects before the Bulgarian defence industry." The main objective of the forum was aimed at discussion of experiences and lessons learned from the participation of Bulgarian Defense Technological Industrial Base and the Public Administration in program EDIDP as well as the development and implementation of national level of clear and transparent model and procedures for participation and support of EDIDP / EDF projects from the side of industry, research organizations and the state. Discussed were the possibilities of the Forum and to promote a dialogue between the Bulgarian and European companies for partnership and participation in EDIDP (match-making).
In 2022 the following Session of this event will be held.
