NATO COE Catalogue 2024
The annual catalogue of Centres Of Excellence has emerged as a highly popular platform for showcasing the Centres’ expertise, not only within NATO bodies but also among different stakeholders. This success is attributed to the dedicated efforts of the community of 29 NATO-accredited Centres Of Excellence, soon to become 30 with the accreditation of the Climate Change and Security Centre Of Excellence, which has demonstrated resilience in addressing contemporary challenges through innovative initiatives, preserving its diverse expertise for the benefit of the Alliance.
The primary objective of the catalogue is to enhance understanding of the nature and value of NATO Centres Of Excellence within the Alliance. Additionally, the promotional tools aim to explain the creation process of these centres and, crucially, provide insights into how their support can be requested.
A NATO-accredited Centre of Excellence is an entity sponsored by one or more nations, offering recognized expertise within a defined subject area for the benefit of the Alliance. Established based on an idea originating in 2003, these entities, which are not part of NATO’s Command Structure, must conform to NATO procedures, avoid duplication, and maintain relationships with Strategic Commands and partners.
