cotc17 300x250The 2017 Chiefs of Transformation Conference (COTC17) will take place from Tuesday 12 December to Thursday 14 December 2017 in Norfolk, Virginia.

"NATO Allied Command Transformation’s Principal Annual Conference"

COTC is a key annual event hosted by NATO ACT in order to share a higher level of understanding on future security challenges, innovation and transformation. It is the only venue that gathers the national Chiefs of Transformation, from across the Alliance and Partner nations, with NATO’s senior leadership for open interaction and discussion on national Transformational initiatives and longer-term capability development.

COTC17 Theme: "PREPARE FOR TOMORROW SHARE THE FUTURE"

As a new initiative this year, COTC17 will include five syndicate topics, each led by a Nation supported by ACT, where the attending senior COTC Principals (national COTs and NATO Senior leaders) will, in a facilitated round-table format, exchange information, views and opinions with the aim to identify follow on activities in specific areas of interest. The five syndicate topics (with National leads), are:

  1. Future Capability Development (FRA).
  2. Leadership, Professional Development and Talent Management (USA).
  3. More Effective Decision Making (GBR).
  4. More improved and agile Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (JISR) for future operations (ESP).
  5. Future Sustainment (DEU).

The 5 Syndicate Topics will also be supported with an "Industry Engagement" session designed to provide a platform of interaction for the participants with relevant industrial companies and their products. As a further new initiative of COTC17, during the 2 days there will be "Innovation Breaks" that will add a completely new dimension to regular coffee breaks. These innovation breaks are designed to inspire the participants, leading them to visualize and experience the elements and technologies of a shared future. They are designed to be mind-expanding, inspiring and entertaining.
