One of the key decisions made at the 2016 Warsaw Summit was to project stability in the Euro-Atlantic area and beyond. In order to be able to do this, NATO has to enhance its ability to undertake effective C2 across the full spectrum of missions, especially in those where partnering with civilian organisations is required.
Projecting stability from a C2 perspective means a focus of effort on: ensuring interoperability, enhancing situational awareness, adapting to challenges and threats and keep sustainable structures with partners.
Annually the NATO C2COE organises a seminar. This year it will be conducted in Valencia, Spain, from 13 to 15 June, supported by Headquarters NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Spain.
The aim of the seminar is to understand Command and Control when working closely with civilian stakeholders in operations, such as a Senior Civil Representative, Host Nation authorities, civilian leadership of UN- or EU-missions and other organisations. Furthermore, 2017 is the 10th Anniversary of the Centre. This important milestone will be celebrated during the event.
Unfortunately Ms Lise Grande and Mr Kenneth Deane have withdrawn from the C2 Seminar because of a shift in their schedules. However, we are excited to announce that Mr. Jesper Holmer Lund, Chief of the Emergency Services Branch in UNOCHA, and Mr. Bert Versmessen, Chief of Staff/ Deputy Civilian Operations Commander Civilian Planning and Conduct Capability (EEAS), will replace them respectively.
The seminar guide which consists the biographies of the speakers is available via this link.

Devoted to find potential solutions to identify the steps to improve civil – military C2 for future operations and to know the currents efforts to do it.
