Strategies, objectives and areas of action

  • Boost the modernisation of corporate services by integrating new technologies into processes and following the guidelines set out in the Digital Transformation Plan of the Central Government and its public agencies.

  • Develop human resources, training, motivation, recognition and talent retention in the framework of the public sector.

  • Boost engagement in projects and programmes at international bodies and institutions (EU, NATO, EDA, OSCE, ESA, Eurocontrol, etc.) and, particularly, within the new framework set up by the European Defence Action Plan.

  • Continue with our corporate social responsibility commitments and public service vocation.

International reach

In addition to the actions Isdefe carries out at a national level commissioned by the Administration in areas of technological and strategic interest, it also performs activities in international organisations and countries, especially in the European environment, where Isdefe does not act as an in-house service provider (<20% of its activity).

Isdefe’s activity strategy focuses on European multilateral bodies and the administrations of Spain’s allied countries.

  • Ensure participation in initiatives and organisations in the interests of defence and security.
  • Align the activity with the interests of the General State Administration (AGE) in general and the Ministry of Defence in particular, following the lines of the State's Foreign Action Strategy.
  • Support MINDEF and its European representatives, and strengthen partnerships and relationships of trust with European companies.
  • Focus the activity on the company’s areas of excellence.
  • Acquire knowledge to reinforce the activity of Isdefe as an in-house technical service provider.
