Russia’s war against Ukraine dramatically reshaped Europe’s security situation and will have an enduring yet incremental impact on the EU defence landscape. Today, the most visible response from participating Member States (pMS) is defence spending increases, as well as urgent efforts to replenish stocks and improve readiness. In the wake of the Strategic Compass and the Versailles summit declaration, work has also started to further analyse defence investment gaps, fulfil procurement needs, and stimulate defence innovation with the establishment of the Hub for EU Defence Innovation (HEDI) and other initiatives.

The Coordinated Annual Review on Defence (CARD) provides an overview of the EU defence landscape to help improve its coherence over time. The 2022 CARD Report is built upon the most current information provided by pMS in bilateral meetings and exchanges up until October 2022. It offers key strategic and political messages derived from the 2022 CARD Aggregated Analysis, actionable recommendations and options to generate collaborative projects.

This is the second CARD report published by the European Defence Agency (EDA).
