Faces of EU MODEX

What does EU MODEX mean to me? 

The EU MODEX is truly an exercise program not just a series of exercises. With the continuous efforts of all participants, it evolves together with the Union Civil Protection Mechanism, and supports the UCPM preparedness goal/mission for the benefit of affected people all over the world and of European solidarity.


What are my wishes for the future of EU MODEX? 

That the Community of Exercise Practitioners continues to be even more open, inclusive, forward-looking and experimental to develop further the exercise methodology in order to continuously support the enhancement of UCPM preparedness.
