This year’s seminar, organised in cooperation with the Canadian Joint Warfare Centre, is titled “Future of NATO Decision-making”. An important but complex subject in a time where conditions change rapidly. This event will take place from the 21st to the 23rd of November 2023 at the Majoor Jan Linzel Complex (MJLC) – The Hague, The Netherlands.
The objectives of the seminar are to share current C2 knowledge, learn from operators, academics and industry, build the C2 network, explore C2 developments and gain insights with the attendees. Together with a range of experts we will investigate the current state of C2, take a closer look at the near future and explore the unknowns: ‘what changes in decision-making might surprise us?’.
To have a fruitful meeting about NATO decision-making in the future we require a variety of viewpoints.
