Combat Support Week Online Conference

, Online Event , Your Computer


As NATO transforms force structures and TTPs for the peer fight, defence logistics and military engineering will undergo a transformation. The job will remain the same, but new challenges and constraints imposed by our adversaries will need to be overcome.

What constraints will our adversaries impose? How will we overcome new challenges? What new opportunities will this transformation create? What new technologies will be pivotal to minimising disruption and ensuring resilience? These are among the questions that logistics commanders and military engineers from across NATO will discuss during Combat Support Week Online on 17th and 18th February 2021.

Running across two days of presentations and virtual networking opportunities, Combat Support Week Online will provide maximum access and participation for our global community, protected from the potential for ongoing disruption by COVID-19. Hosted on a secure online platform, conference sessions are timed to facilitate international participation: 0900-1430 (EST), 1400-1930 (GMT), 2200-0430 (SGT). Sessions will also be made available on-demand where permission has been granted.

All serving military personnel are being offered free registration for this event, allowing for broader participation across ranks, specialities and geographies. Make sure to book your place as soon as possible!
