Access to knowledge through learning experiences
Great opportunity to gain specific knowledge not available at home
Part of a reliable and common network of knowledge
Knowing and interacting with other experts, thus learning about their organizations was the main positive aspect for me.
As we are in process of building and preparing our Slovakian GFFF-V Module (…) this exercise was the biggest opportunity to gather as much information as needed.
Witnessing the live unfolding of actions and being able to see how every team is behaving in given conditions as well as their capacity to adapt and to work in close coordination, has made me realize the both the complexity and added value of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism. It's an experience not to be forgotten.
