SDA Partners & Members

The SDA is an independent organisation without institutional or corporate ties. The SDA's funding comes from membership dues and sponsorship of events or reports, from partners who range from companies active in the fields of defence, security, transport, pharmaceuticals and IT, to international organisations, national ministries, diplomatic missions, research institutes, and leading think tanks and foundations on both sides of the Atlantic. Our members and partners are clearly identified on all relevant material and on our website. Not all support us financially, as we also have a growing network of content partners whose support is intellectual.

As of 9 October 2014, the SDA becomes part of Friends of Europe, and as such will adhere to Friends or Europe's policies on memberships and partnerships. The below list merely refers to the situation before 9 October 2014.
