The consortium is coordinated by Laurea University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and consists of a diverse group of civilian, research and military organisations reflecting the variety within EU missions. The overall goal of the project is to find out new approaches and solutions to respond the future challenges and threats.

The project analyses and evaluates the missions effectiveness in three selected, case study areas, where the European External Action Service (EEAS) acts under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). Areas being examined are Balkans, Africa, Middle East and Asia. Such comprehensive analysis of current external actions can provide better answers to creating more effective missions.
