DIGITALEUROPE Director General to advise NATO on emerging technologies

Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl has been selected by NATO’s Secretary General as one of twelve members of a new external high-level advisory group on emerging and disruptive technologies. She was nominated by her home country, Denmark.

The group will provide insights and advice to NATO on how the alliance can maintain its technological leadership in the 21st century, where non-traditional players such as those in the digital industry are increasingly playing a role.

Director-General of DIGITALEUROPE, Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl said:

“Digital technologies are playing an increasingly influential role in different aspects of our societies, and that includes defence cooperation. I look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience from the private sector into NATO’s work on emerging and disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing and autonomous mobility. Hopefully I can bring a new perspective to the table, as well as enhancing the possibilities for transatlantic dialogue on key digital issues.”


In December 2019, NATO adopted a roadmap for how the Alliance should adapt to technology development. This includes work tracks on, amongst others, artificial intelligence, quantum technology and collaboration with the tech industry. This new group brings together twelve representatives from academia and business to advise the Secretary General on these matters.
