2024 marks the 25th anniversary of the Czech Republic’s accession to NATO, which marked a watershed moment on the path to ensuring their national security.

Today, we had the honor of hosting Colonel Tomas Kosik from the Czech Republic’s Army. He received a warm welcome from NATO C2COE Director Mietta Groeneveld (NLD A), Chief of Staff Mesut Dönmez (TUR AF), and a delegation of staff officers. During their meeting, they discussed the activities of the centre, its significance within the Alliance, and the operational dynamics of the NATO C2COE.

“We recognize the immense value of having the Czech Republic as a potential member of the NATO C2COE. Their participation would significantly contribute to the advancement of command and control capabilities within the Alliance,” Colonel Groeneveld emphasized.

The NATO C2COE serves as a NATO accredited knowledge hub which focuses on interdisciplinary applied research, development, consultations, evaluations, and support related to Operational Level Command and Control. At its core, the centre comprises a diverse group of international experts representing four nations. Membership in the NATO C2COE is open to all Allies. Currently, the Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, and the United States have committed as Sponsoring Nations, with Germany expressing its intention to rejoin in 2026.
