Ground Forces 2035



The F2E+i concept has been designed in order to define the Army’s short, medium and long term needs and to place it at the vanguard of technological development, which Force 35 will require. It is a meeting place for the Army and the defence industry, with contributions from Spanish universities, where the different groups can work together and share their perspectives with the aim of creating a highly modern, technologically advanced force.



F2E + i
  • F2E+i Concept

    • Concept: Army, businesses and innovation forum (F2E+i, to use the Spanish abbreviation)

      This concept will be brought to life through two kinds of activities:

      • WORKSHOPS. At a basic level, they are bimonthly meetings between businesses and the Army, intended to establish a direct and specific forum for debate about a combat capacity or function. During these meetings the Army will present what it needs in order to achieve its objectives. Companies, as well as universities and technology centres and associations will present their projects and equipment to satisfy the needs for these specific capacities, opening new avenues for research and experimentation.


      • ARMY AND BUSINESS FORUMS. At a higher level, the objective is to formalise a global forum between the Army and business. This idea will be realised in a yearly meeting which, through the exchange of information, will synthesise needs (from the Army), productive capabilities (from businesses) future technologies (from universities and technological associations or centres), identifying integrated combat systems and research, development and innovation projects. This will principally be carried out through analysing the results of the workshops. This level of cooperation will foster the creation of temporary unions between businesses and consortiums.
