The 7th Lessons Learned Workshop (LLWS ) of the Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) Centre of Excellence (C-IED COE) was conducted at Hoyo de Manzanares, Spain, from 11 to 13 June 2019.
Two JALLC Staff members attended this workshop. They led a panel on "Information Exchange and National Solutions" and gave presentations on the NATO LL Portal and the Analysis Process used in JALLC projects.
The aim of the LLWS was to feed information to the NATO Lessons Learned structures to contribute to the improvement of NATO and national operations and to increase the knowledge of the missions that different nations/agencies are conducting in countries with a high IED threat, in order to facilitate and enhance interaction in the multinational C-IED community.
The LLWS focussed on several topics relating to LL in the C-IED disciplines, like threat analysis from the theatre, support to NATO training activities, and cooperation amongst the COEs.
The C-IED COE is an International Military Organization, manned and funded by contributions from 12 Nations. Although it is accredited by NATO, a COE is not part of the NATO Command Structure (NCS), but forms part of the wider framework supporting the NCS.
