Greece becomes a member of Hybrid CoE

The Ambassador of Greece to Finland, H.E. Mr Georgios Ayfantis, gave notification today regarding participation in the Memorandum of Understanding on the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats (Hybrid CoE), officially making Greece a member state of the Centre.

“We warmly welcome Greece as the 21st member of Hybrid CoE. It is excellent to have Greek expertise and partnership at hand in our networks of practitioners,” said Matti Saarelainen, the Director of Hybrid CoE.

Ambassador Ayfantis stated that, “By joining the Centre of Excellence, Greece wishes to actively contribute to the important work of the Centre. For Greece, fighting hybrid threats is extremely important, given its geostrategic position in a region with high security dynamics. In this sense, we are particularly interested in the exercises and training. On the other hand, we do hope that Hybrid CoE will benefit from the Greek contribution on a variety of topics that Greece has been working on together with other Eastern Mediterranean countries.”

The European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats is a hub of practitioners and experts building member states’ capabilities and enhancing EU-NATO cooperation in countering hybrid threats. In addition to Greece, the other participating states of the Centre are Austria, Canada, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US.
