The Civil-Military Cooperation Centre of Excellence (CCOE) is an international military organization founded to support NATO's transformation program. As part of the NATO Centres of Excellence programme the CCOE was established in 2001.


CIMIC (Civil-military co-operation) describes the cooperation of military and civilian actors in the different theatres, which is becoming more important after the end of the Cold War.

Mission and task

The Mission of the CCOE is, to collect and concentrate expertise concerning CIMIC from all parts inside NATO to find and implement new approaches. For this the CCOE cooperates with different actors like the Helmut Schmidt University of the Bundeswehr in the City of Hamburg and its German counterpart the Zentrum Zivil-Militärische Zusammenarbeit der Bundeswehr (ZentrZMZBw).


The CCOE is led by a Directorate.
