Hybrid CoE organised an EU – NATO workshop on hybrid risks in the Baltic Sea region

Today the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats (Hybrid CoE) organised an expert meeting focusing on information exchange and assessment of the hybrid threats and risks in the Baltic Sea region. The Centre organised the workshop in cooperation with the EU and NATO.

The expert meeting was related to an initiative of the Finnish and Swedish Foreign Ministers (6 September). They proposed a role for Hybrid CoE in promoting EU–NATO cooperation in the hybrid risk assessment in the Baltic Sea region. At the inauguration of the Centre (2 October), Prime Minister Juha Sipilä considered the workshop to be a good example of how Hybrid CoE can promote the EU–NATO cooperation in enhancing preparedness for hybrid threats. The event is part of the activities of Hybrid CoE’s Vulnerabilities and Resilience Network, which Finland is in charge of.
