Hybrid threats have become a permanent part of our security environment. Due to increased opportunities for hybrid influencing during the present information age, the hybrid challenge will grow. The European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats (Hybrid CoE) is to serve as a hub of expertise supporting the participating countries’ individual and collective efforts to enhance their civil-military capabilities, resilience, and preparedness to counter hybrid threats with a special focus on European security. It is intended that the Centre will offer this collective experience and expertise for the benefit of all participating countries, as well as the EU and NATO. The Centre will follow a comprehensive, multinational, multidisciplinary and academic-based approach.
