The NATO Security Force Assistance Centre of Excellence is a multinational entity that today is sponsored by Albania and Slovenia with Italy as Framework nation. The project started in 2016, following the Italian’s Government proposal to the Alliance, for the creation of a SFA COE focused on research, doctrine development and training, with the aim to promote stability and reconstruction efforts for any crisis scenarios and to become a SFA focal point for the Alliance. The event reflects the goal of the NATO SFA COE to improve cooperation and interoperability, ensuring a joint approach in achieving its objectives and, to support the Alliance in shaping the new strategies in this complex security environment.
