Stavanger: On 10 August 2004 the Allied Command Transformation (ACT) Training Team gathered at Stavanger to undertake pre-deployment training for NATO's Training Implementation Mission in Iraq.
The new Joint Warfare Centre (JWC), officially inaugurated on October 23rd, is a result of NATO’s ongoing transformation. It comes into being as the old Joint Headquarters North (JHQN) ceases to exist. NATO has indeed got the JWC off to a fast start, as the reform of the defence organization’s Command Structure was endorsed as recently as June.
Joint Warfare Centre hosts this week its first training event after its inauguration on 23 October 03. Some 130 personnel from NATO’s Southern Command in Italy will participate.
