In the air, your jets have kept the skies secure over the Black Sea region. At sea, your ships have strengthened NATO's maritime forces. And in cyberspace, NATO's state of the art cyber academy is being built right here in Portugal”.

The Chairman concluded his trip to Portugal by attending the Military Ceremony organized to commemorate the Centenary of the end of the First World War.

Highlights of the 3rd NCIA E&T Conference and the New Training Academy in Oeiras

The third Education and Training Conference promoted by NCIA, the NATO Communications and Information Agency, was held at the Catholic University of Lisbon from the 23rd to the 25th of October. This forum brings together the Organization's managers, Allies and training providers in the field of technology, and focused on the 2019 training catalog and on the trends for this area.

Speakers emphasized the strategic importance of the NCIA mission and its trainings for the collective defense of NATO Allies, as well as the relevance of the new Training Academy currently under construction in Oeiras.

May 2017 marked the start of construction of this new Academy, which will provide 100 offices, 43 labs and 26 classrooms, where 400 courses per year will be taught for an estimated universe of 6000 students.

The NCIA Academy aims to provide technical training in the areas of communications, command and control, focusing on cyber-defense, a project in which NATO is associated with industry and universities. A protocol was signed with the Catholic University for training entrepreneurs, and the universities and industries of all NATO Allies may compete for the available trainings.
