In addition, a series of workshops and seminars took place during those events, allowing all attendees to participate, as well as enjoy an institutional visit to ALA 12, Torrejón de Ardoz Air Base in Madrid.
On Wednesday June 15th, the expert panel was held at the Centro Cultural de los Ejércitos, in Madrid, with the presence of large crowds of attendees, from both the civilian and the military fields, with students, academics and professionals interested in this panel of experts.
