Think Tank Forum, 05-07 April 2016
The third “Joint Air and Space Power Think Tank Forum” was conducted in Madrid from 05-07 April, 2016, graciously hosted by the Spanish Air Force. The main objective of the Forum was to exchange information regarding the composition and responsibilities of Think Tanks, Air Warfare Centres, Air Force HQs, and Military Academies of the NATO Nations sponsoring the JAPCC. Issues include creating mutual awareness of focus areas, coordinating programmes of work, discussing solutions to common challenges as well as establishing objectives for follow-on collaboration were discussed.
During the meeting, participants shared their current projects and discussed potential areas of cooperation in order to prevent duplication of effort. The Forum was most beneficial in identifying vectors for mutual cooperation and outlining ways for more efficient coordination of the various institutions’ projects. The chairman, JAPCC Chief of Staff, Col. E. Lee Wingfield, encouraged continued advancement of critical thinking on the collaborative forum available for all participants of the meetings.
