The world is changing. NATO, the transatlantic alliance, is continuing to adapt to keep Americans and Europeans safe in this decade and beyond. The NATO 2030 initiative is about making sure our Alliance remains ready today to face tomorrow’s challenges. At the June 14 NATO Summit in Brussels, President Biden and 29 Allied Leaders will take decisions on the substantive and forward-looking NATO 2030 agenda: Russia’s aggressive actions, the threat of terrorism, cyber attacks, emerging and disruptive technologies, the security impact of climate change, and the rise of China.
Earlier this year, Allies agreed on a Strategy on Emerging and Disruptive Technologies, prioritizing efforts within the Alliance and setting out a clear framework for the engagement with Allied innovation ecosystems. In coming months, Allies will agree on NATO’s AI Strategy and principles of responsible use in the defense environment, reflecting Allied values. Today, a few weeks before the Summit, two NATO representatives are coming to San Francisco – virtually – to listen to America’s West-Coast and engage with you about emerging and disruptive technologies, and about cyber security.
