Plans, Concepts, Development and Vision

ACE SMEs proactively establish links to other stakeholders responsible for overarching and broad themes that will shape future developments in the Alliance. We are aiming at contributing our expertise to the steps of the NATO Defence Planning Process and to the work strands of the Warfare Development Agenda. This will ensure that our projects follow the right vector, from the definition phase of projects through the various steps of development and drafting. It is paramount for the JAPCC to closely follow and link to conceptual and doctrinal developments.
