On the 10th and 11th of May 2022, at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels, a delegation composed of the Sponsoring Nations of the NATO Security Force Assistance Centre of Excellence (NATO SFA COE) participated in the 2022 edition of the NATO Accredited Centres of Excellence Marketplace.

The aim was to provide an opportunity for the delegations to showcase national contributions made to the Alliance, and for all the personnel of the NATO HQ to recognize, understand and embrace the value of the expertise, support and advice provided by the 28 NATO accredited COEs.

During the event, the NATO SFA COE delegation explained the COE’s main projects and the interdisciplinary activities in support of the Alliance, highlighting the current and future challenges in support of NATO Human Capital.

In particular it presented its training offer for 2022, both in person and online, that satisfies NATO performance gaps identified within the Military Contribution to Peace Support Discipline through the System Approach to Training process that represents suitable training solutions aligned with performance gaps.

Furthermore, two important projects were presented, the publication on “Promoting the Rule of Law and Good governance”, prepared with the support of a group of international experts and the SFA Operators profile Analysis Report aimed at seeking a definition of the profile for advisors, mentors and trainers in the SFA environment.

This event was a fruitful opportunity for the NATO SFA COE to promote its work and share the products and outputs delivered to NATO on behalf of their Sponsoring Nations.
