Portugal becomes a participating state of the Hybrid CoE

H.E. Mr António Manuel Coelho Da Costa Moura, Ambassador of Portugal, visited Hybrid CoE to hand over the Letter of Notification to Director Teija Tiilikainen, officially making Portugal the 27th participating state of the Centre.

“We are delighted to have Portugal among the participating states. I’m sure that Portuguese practitioners and experts have a lot to offer our networks of practitioners. Countering hybrid threats is based on international cooperation, and so the broader our networks, the more effective this becomes,” said Tiilikainen.

“Portugal is pleased to join Hybrid CoE and is committed to deepening our cooperation with partners in this field. The process of becoming a member of Hybrid CoE has shaped our national coordination in addressing hybrid threats. We have opted for a whole-of-government approach, which reflects our commitment to a civil-military approach to meeting this challenge, and takes into account both its internal and external dimensions,” said Ambassador Costa Moura.

Besides Portugal, the participants of the Centre of Excellence include Austria, Canada, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, 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.
