In order to achieve this objective the Commission set up a “training programme, with a view to enhancing the coordination of civil protection assistance intervention by ensuring compatibility and complementarities between the above mentioned intervention teams and modules, and by improving the competence of the experts involved.
Considering that the overall objective of this Call is to enhance coherence and cohesion and exploit synergies between the Civil Protection training centers in the Participating States, in order to ensure diversity of the civil protection training programme and appropriate cross border cooperation, the Italian Civil Protection Department, supported by Studiare Sviluppo, submitted a training proposal in partnership with Croatia and the United Kingdom.
