Success: CCOE connecting People and Institutions

On the 28th of August, the Department of Defense, Defense Geographic Agency from the Dutch Forces visited the UN Humanitarian Data Center, located in The Hague. The overall aim of this visit was to discuss a closer cooperation between the two parties.

This meeting could be held due to the engagement of CCOE´s Lessons Learned & Analysis Branch. They identified, that it could be useful for both parties to meet each other in order to build up future working relations and cooperation. Doing this the CCOE is following it´s own given motto Connecting People and to work as a Global Synchronization Place for NATO CIMIC & CMI.

CCOE is the preferred network campus to connect, share collective knowledge and gain unity of purpose in the field of Civil-Military Interaction.

We wish both organizations all the best for their cooperation!
