On the 6th and 7th of March, the NATO Security Force
Assistance Centre of Excellence (NATO SFA COE) participated in the conference
entitled "International emergencies and armed conflicts".
This event was aimed at students of the new bachelor’s degree
of the University of Verona in "Strategic Studies for Security and
International Policies" and it was the first event organized by the
students of the Master's degree in "Emergency Governance".
During the conference, the representatives of the NATO SFA
COE introduced the activities and emphasized the relevance of Security Force
Assistance for NATO missions and operations while facing current complex
international scenarios. They also presented the first results of the
Internship Program, part of the cooperation between the two entities that
started in June 2021.
Collaboration between the NATO SFA COE and Academia is an
essential part of the Centre’s activities, as highlighted by several events conducted
with universities during recent months. It represents an important enrichment,
especially for students, who have the opportunity to better understand the
roles and tasks of this COE in developing concrete solutions to improve the
effectiveness of the Alliance in the field of SFA.
