The European Union Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy (EUGS) has highlighted the need for the EU to further improve its civilian missions, by pursuing better communication, information-sharing, joint reporting, analysis and response planning between member state embassies, EU delegations, Commission services, EU Special Representatives and Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions.

The CIVILnEXt project supports the development of a solution addressing existing “fragmentation” and closing “gaps”, to provide civilian CSDP missions with the next generation of secure and cost-effective information systems. Fully informed of contributing initiatives in civilian CSDP and EU external action, the project will aim to develop solutions leveraging on the results extracted from projects funded by the EU. The common challenge in CIVILnEXt is to develop, test and validate a cost-effective and interoperable operation control platform (OCP) that will support the conduct of civilian CSDP missions. The OCP will improve coordination in EU external action through better information exchange, situational awareness and operation control in diverse theaters of operation.

Centre for European Perspective is a proud partner of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Learn more about the CIVILnEXt project in our new video below!
