The Counter Improvised Explosives Devices, Centre of Excellence, has in its facilities a lodge with 60 single rooms and common areas, with living room and dining room, outdoor garden, terraces and self-service laundry. The main goal is to give accommodation to the people attending the COE courses and events.
The Counter Improvised Explosive Devices Centre of Excellence (C-IED COE) is an International Military Organization, multinationally manned and funded by contributions from 12 nations. Although it is accredited by NATO, a COE is not part of the NATO Command Structure (NCS), but forms part of the wider framework supporting NCS. It is established as a subsidiary body of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) in accordance with Article 9 of the North Atlantic Treaty and granted international status pursuant to Article 14 of the Paris Protocol.
