By Public Affairs Office
From 8 - 12 May 17 this year's first iteration of the Combined Training Conference (CTC) attracted 400 attendees from 39 nations and was hosted at the NATO School Oberammergau.
The purpose of the conference was to support NATO interoperability and develop Allied and partner capabilities for the time horizon of 2017 to 2020. US and NATO military planning staff came together to synchronize, source and schedule regional, land-based, joint integrated exercises and individual training. This particular CTC focused on scheduling and synchronizing activities that support post-NATO Warsaw Summit strategic imperatives.
