Maintaining Readiness for 2020: Academics at JFCBS

Brunssum, the Netherlands – Allied Headquarters Joint Force Command Brunssum (JFCBS) will be the NATO Response Force (NRF) Standby Command in 2020 and preparation starts now.  This week JFCBS is hosting the so-called "Academics” for HQs staff and those from nominated supporting commands: these serials lay the ground for Exercise Trident Jupiter 2019 (TRJU19) which aims to certify JFCBS for its NRF 2020 role.  An essential part of the Academics is the Key-Leader-Training (KLT).  The combination of Academics and KLT provide an integral and practical approach to prepare the staff for TRJU19. 
This week’s activities will provide a platform to share knowledge, generate common Situational Awareness & understanding, and establish a working structure/framework for the exercise.  In turn, this generates a strong foundation for TRJU19 and ensures that the exercise nurtures the maximum possible learning benefit to all participants. 
Note:  The NRF is a highly ready and technologically advanced, multinational force comprised of land, air, maritime and Special Operations Forces (SOF) components that the Alliance can deploy quickly, wherever needed.
