CIMEX started in Tallinn: Sixteen online participants

CIOR Public Affairs 25.09.2020

There’s another first for CIOR, as the 2020 CIOR CIMEX (civil-military cooperation exercise) has 16 online participants from North America and Europe along with 18 in Tallinn. A distinguished panel of speakers are due over the three days, discussing a variety of topics including NATO energy strategy, the HADR (humanitarian aid and disaster relief) mission from a EUCOM (US European Command) perspective and supporting the exercise for the delegates – enabling both virtual and physical attendees to contribute equally.

On Sunday, the CIOR ‘Late Summer Congress’ (LSC) will kick off with the opening ceremony and welcome reception for physical attendees. Many more will join online when the congress meetings start on Monday.

The LSC is organised in lieu of the CIOR Summer Congress in Liege, Belgium, which was scheduled to take place in August but cancelled due to Covid-19.

This year’s CIMEX (civil-military cooperation exercise) has 16 online participants from North America and Europe along with 18 physically present in Tallinn.
