<br>

<em>”It is with great pleasure that <strong>I open EURO-ISME’s 9th annual conference at this magnificent venue</strong>, the Austrian Landesverteidigungsakademie in Toledo.</em></p>

<p><em>First and foremost, I would of course like to thank our hosts very much for opening their doors to us. We are most appreciative of their enthusiasm and their generous welcome, without which we could not have gathered here today. Thank you to all of the teams which have helped to organise the conference: we are very grateful to them.</em></p>

<p>And I would like to <strong>thank all of you for attending</strong> today. Your presence shows the interest which you take in military ethics-themed research. We appreciate your loyalty towards the conference which we are holding today. The presence of so many researchers, both government and military, is a formidable promise of quality exchanges and I am again convinced that we will go home better informed in every field: technical, philosophical, legal, human and of course, ethical.</p>
