The effectiveness of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) relies on the collaboration among the Commission, the Participating States and the experts who are trained in the framework of the UCPM Training Programme.
Experts are the main business card of the UCPM during missions. Their experiences are most valuable to the Mechanism and they reflect on the quality of our training courses which they enrich through their experiences from exercises and real missions. Last but not least they help building up an international network of trusted expertise in civil protection.
NexT has been conceived as a newsletter on training and exercises matters with national experts as a target audience, and it is issued twice a year. The newsletter aims to serve as a means through which experiences from different areas of our work can be shared with experts and it also contains information and links to interesting sites regarding participation opportunities in activities held within the framework of the Mechanism.
