More countries join centre on hybrid threats

Estonia, Norway and Spain have signed up to the planned European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats, based in Helsinki.

The centre will conduct research, training and consultation, and work with countries to improve their readiness to counter threats that combine attacks on people, infrastructure and supplies. Hybrid warfare is a military strategy that blends conventional warfare, irregular warfare and cyberwarfare. 

The Finnish government, which will host the centre, said on 14 July that it had launched the start-up phase and that the centre was expected to be operational in early 2018.
