Annual NATO conference to be held in Lithuania

From Feb­ru­ary 7 to 9 the annu­al NATO Train­ing Syn­chro­niza­tion Con­fer­ence will be organ­ised in Vil­nius by the NATO Supreme Allied Com­mand Trans­for­ma­tion (SACT). Over 200 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of NATO and part­ner coun­tries are expect­ed to take part in the con­fer­ence.

The Train­ing Syn­chro­niza­tion Con­fer­ence held in Lithua­nia will inte­grate four con­fer­ences on the allied exer­cise and war­fare train­ing: the NATO Train­ing and Exer­cise Plan­ning Con­fer­ence, the NATO Indi­vid­ual Train­ing and Edu­ca­tion Con­fer­ence, the meet­ing of the Steer­ing Group NATO Train­ing Group (SGNTG) and the NATO Edu­ca­tion Forum.

The main atten­tion of the con­fer­ence will be focused on the align­ment and improve­ment of war­fare train­ing, edu­ca­tion and eval­u­a­tion pro­grammes in NATO and part­ner coun­tries which will enable a more effi­cient usage of resources for train­ing nation­al forces of the allies.
