Recommendations for the development of a future Situational Awareness, Information Exchange and Operation Control Platform (OCP) in EU civilian CSDP missions
This policy brief presents findings and recommendations from the CIVILEX project. The CIVILEX project was funded through a ‘Coordination and Support Action’ call in the H2020 Research and Innovation Framework of the European Commission. The call titled ‘Next generation of information systems to support EU external policies’ invited consortia to submit proposals to establish recommendations for the development of a future common Situational Awareness, Information Exchange and Operation Control Platform (OCP for short), to be employed in EU civilian CSDP missions. The resulting recommendations form the basis for a subsequent ‘Pre-Commercial Procurement’ project, eventually leading to the development of the platform.
