Hungary joins Hybrid CoE

This afternoon Mr. Gergely Németh, Hungarian Deputy State Secretary for Defence Policy, visited  Hybrid CoE to hand over the Letter of Notification to Director Teija Tiilikainen, officially making Hungary the 26th member state of the Centre.

“The Hungarian decision to join the Centre adds to the cooperation in the field of countering hybrid threats. We are looking forward to having Hungary contribute to our activities,” said Director Tiilikainen.

“It is important that European nations are devoting increasing attention and resources to endeavour ways of multinational cooperation with regards to countering hybrid threats. In our assessment, the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats in Helsinki is an essential element in the European toolbox as it serves as a network for information sharing as well as best practices and it provide a central platform for concerted efforts in the emerging security domains. Therefore, Hungary is glad to be able to join this community through our accession to the Hybrid CoE,” told Mr. Németh.

Besides Hungary, the participants of the Centre of Excellence include Austria, Canada, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The Centre cooperates closely with the EU and NATO.
