In this Commentary feature the authors argued that it was time to move in 2018 past institutional integration and develop practical European security capabilities.

The EU had taken a step into this direction with PESCO, the Permanent Structured Cooperation, under whose umbrella concrete security projects were being developed. But this cannot be the end of the line. PESCO focused on small-scale technical projects instead of political initiatives that could capture the public imagination.

The author focuses on three areas:

+ More investment
+ New technologies
+ A combat-ready force
