After the annual Concept Development and Experimentation (CD&E) Working Group (WG) at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center in May of this year, a decision was made to have a 4th day event at the conclusion of the 2015 CD&E Conference in November which is now titled the "2015 CD&E Process Review Workshop" on 19 November in Berlin.
At the CD&E Working Group in May of this year, a need to review the purpose and timing of the CD&E Working Group, and accelerating the identification of CD&E initiatives from NATO bodies, Nations and Centres of Excellence were identified.
A detailed agenda provided as part of the read-a-head package, with a focus on the following themes:
- Development of the 2017 CD&E Programme of Work
- National Areas of Interest Feedback
- The future of the CD&E Working Group and amended CD&E timelines
- Modifications to ACT Directive 10-1 (CD&E WG terms of reference)
The CD&E Process Review Workshop is targeted at national organisational representatives in the rank of NATO OF-5 and below, that have extensive knowledge of CD&E activities within their nation. Further information can be obtained by going to the CDE365 Website.
