MISCELLANEOUS

NATO MP COE is a repository of MP lessons learned in cooperation with the NATO JALLC.
The COE is a force multiplier; by sending one or more staff officers to the COE, a nation can propose items for the programme of work and have up to 54 multinational staff officers addressing the issue.
Sponsoring nations are voting members of the MP COE steering committee that governs the COE and makes all decisions associated with budget and programme of work.
Sponsoring nations receive training at the MP COE free of charge. Non-Sponsoring Nations pay a fee.

The mission and vision of the MP COE are determined by sponsoring nations. The MP COE could be guided to new directions to suit the sponsoring nations' needs.
Access to premises at low cost.
Single location for SMEs working for the benefit of NATO and nations – enormous reduction of travel costs and coherent common approach for all nations in a given subject matter based on contributions from all participants
As an independent organisation with the steering committee in the leadership role, the COE will not succumb to pressure from external entities.
The NATO MP COE, based on experience from other COEs, has strong relationships with international organisations that are sometimes difficult to establish in a purely national or NATO environment.
The Framework Nation, Poland providesthe infrastructure, initial equipment and all support staff for the COE. This significant investment by Poland ensures that the contributions of sponsoring nations firmly focus on using the programme of work.
The NATO MP COE is located in a favourable environment in the city of Bydgoszcz which offers facilities and supports the multinational staff and their families.
