The Collaboration Charter was only signed in November 2023 and with Industry we are working through the implementation plan. We have made progress already by establishing classified study days over the last 18 months, including one on Ukraine lessons, and by inviting industry to participate this year in our Planned Force Testing event for the first time. We have further study days planned on 22 February 2024 and 12 June 2024 and roughly every quarter thereafter where we will jointly share operational lessons and future challenges.
