EDRIN is the group of independent, solution driven, not-for profit research organizations with a substantial role in defence research and development as part of a broader research portfolio.
EDRIN has been founded in 2019 by a core group of five members. Together, these five founding partners make up the steering committee and lead the upcoming growth process of the network.
The five founding members are:
- TNO (Netherlands)
- Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany)
- FOI (Sweden)
- VTT (Finland)
- CEA (France)
After EDRIN has first been introduced to the broader public during the High-Level-Defence-Event of the Finnish EU-Presidency in October of 2019, EDRIN will now strongly increase its outreach activities across the entire European Union to ensure a broad representation of RTOs from possibly all Member States.
