The annual Professor Johan Kooy symposium is organised in cooperation with our partners TNO, NLR, KVMO and APA. The symposium is named after the late professor Johan Kooy, who teached ballistics and missile technology in the middle of the last century at the Royal Netherlands Army and Air Force Academy in Breda and at the Technical University of Delft. Johan Kooy retired in 1967 and passed away in 1983.

The Kooy symposium is an important event in the Netherlands defence community geared to promote the use of advanced technology for defence and security applications. Among the speakers and visitors are politicians, military and  civilian decision makers, specialists of the Ministry of Defence, CEOs and top engineers of defence related companies.
Each year we welcome over 250 visitors who participate in plenary presentations related to national and international policy and plans, technical show-case presentations, workshops and a small exhibition, dedicated to the particular topic of the conference.
