On 26-28 April, EU CyberNet held its EU External Cyber Capacity Building training for the Western Balkans, Eastern Partnership and Southern Neighbourhood delegations in Istanbul. This training was the first out of three classroom courses planned for 2022. Over 3 days, programme managers and specialists working on the identification, formulation and implementation of cyber and digitalisation related projects from 12 countries improved their skills in the identification and formulation of new external cyber capacity building projects.

Attendees feedback to the course was spectacular which makes the organisers more than happy. Key takeaways include understanding the CCB key concepts, methods and challenges. The class specifically highlighted the opportunity to practice the new knowledge and design fictional CCB missions during the breakout sessions.

EUCN would like to thank all the participants and the high quality trainers Dr Matteo Lucchetti, Ms Nayia Barmpaliou and Dr Patryk Pawlak without whom such a course would not have been possible! The series of this signature course will continue in September for the Sub-Saharan region and in November for the Latin-America and the Caribbean.
