The Alliance Warfare Development Conference (AWDC) 2022 will take place in Norfolk, Virginia from December 6 – 8.  The Conference brings together key representatives from NATO HQ in Brussels and representatives from most of the 30 NATO nations to exchange ideas and information on some of the main challenges facing NATO.  AWDC’s theme is “Better Today, Stronger Tomorrow” and there will be four topics of focus:


  • Inform the warfare development leaders of the long-term trends and implications of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine;
  • Explore ongoing work on achieving Cognitive Superiority;
  • Exchange views on persistent interoperability challenges;
  • Experiment through practical and immersive innovation projects.

In addition, there will be discussions on the linkages between the NATO Defence Planning Process, Warfare Development Agenda and Capability Development.​​​​
