CMDR COE launched its Internship Programme in 2016 in order to enable capable and motivated young people to join the experts working in international organizations, to allow CMDR COE to benefit from the knowledge and skills of young professionals in their activities in various projects, as well as to familiarise the academic community with the nature, functions and activities of CMDR COE.

For the last years the experts from the CMDR COE have been working in different projects and specifically in the area of Resilience, Climate change and Modelling&Simulation.

Looking at the Resilience as a core element of collective defence NATO works in different directions to develop it. CMDR COE also gives its contribution by participating in some projects in the area. It participated in developing the Collaborative Resilience Concept. Also in cooperation with CIMIC COE the Centre created and conducts the Resilience through Civil Preparedness Course.

The CMDR COE has been working also in the area of Climate change since beginning of its existence. The Centre hosted and organized different workshops and seminars. Also under the auspices of European Security and Defence College it conducts Climate Change and Security Course. This course is supported also by the Diplomatic Institute to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.
