The NATO Command and Control Centre of Excellence hosted 29 NATO-accredited Centre of Excellence directors and their representatives from various countries at the Marine Establishment Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from September 24th to 27th, 2023 during this years Directors Conference.
The aim of the annual NATO Centre of Excellence Directors’ Conference is to foster interaction between Directors of the Centres, and equivalent representatives from NATO bodies and multinational organizations in a way to better coordinate and provide valuable expertise to NATO. Each of the 29 NATO-accredited Centres of Excellence play a major role in challenging NATO, conceptually and intellectually. They are unique and respected organizations within NATO and while they do not duplicate existing efforts within the Alliance, they do maintain functional relationships with NATO’s Strategic Commands, and are encouraged to build relationships with additional national and multinational partners.
The Centres’ Directors discussed the implementation of NATO’s Warfighting Capstone Concept, actions in support of the Warfare Development Agenda, Allied Command Transformation’s key priorities like Multi-Domain Operations and Digital Transformation, in order to enhance their support to the Alliance with their annual programmes of work.
