FUTURE FORCES FORUM (FFF) is a highly recognized and widely endorsed international platform for defence & security information exchange and for promotion of the allied countries and their partners’ objectives within national and global security. The project consists of a compilation of events and activities at a high political, military and expert level. All events are primarily focused on the presentation of current and future needs of the armed and security forces, state-of-the-art technologies and R&D programmes with interactions between all involved participants due to the interconnected topics.  

The main events of Future Forces Forum are organised biennially in Prague with official support of the Czech Ministry of Defence, Chief of the General Staff, Ministry of the Interior, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Prison Service, Customs Service, civil and military parts of the NATO HQ, European Defence Agency (EDA), and many other relevant national and international institutions, organisations and agencies.  

The philosophy behind the FFF is in compliance with the principal objectives and actual core tasks of the Alliance and its Partners across the globe, namely the Connected Forces Initiative, Smart Defence, future potential crises and lessons learned from the latest operations.
