On 01 and 02 November, Colonel Jean-Michel Millet paid a working visit in the Baltic Defence College focused on discussing opportunities for further extended cooperation. Colonel Millet is the Division Head, the Transformation Delivery Division of the Joint Warfare Centre (JWC) in Stavanger. During the visit, he was provided with a brief by the BALDEFCOL Deputy Commandant/ Chief of Staff Colonel Dietmar Hartung, who presented in detail the education and research activities allowing to better comprehend possible areas of further joint undertakings. It was followed by the lecture titled ‘NATO Concepts and Joint Warfare Centre’ by Colonel Millet, who highlighted current security environment challenges, which will lead to the next Strategic Concept expected to be agreed upon at the next NATO Summit in Spain in 2022. The role of the two strategic commands: Allied Command Operations (ACO) and Allied Command Transformation (ACT) was presented within the process of the Concept development.
Another important meeting was conducted with the Dean and Directors of respective Departments and Courses to discuss focused areas of cooperation between two organizations. The meeting proved to be an important one as it enabled recognition of a few areas of common interest, which could be beneficial for both JWC and BALTEDFCOL. A separate working session was held with members of the Department of Military Studies. During this discussion, participants exchange their experience in support professional military education, training and exercises, and identify additional opportunities for further areas for cooperation.
The working visit by Colonel Millet proved to be a successful event, which will support the education and development of future military and civilian leaders and decision makers.
