Meetings of the Defence Ministers at NATO Headquarters in Brussels - North Atlantic Council MeetingThe Building Integrity team at NATO HQ Brussels is one of CIDS’ closest partners. The BI team comprises personnel from NATO’s International Staff and serves as the executing agent and project manager for the BI programme.

Various BI courses are conducted at NATO and national institutions, and are open to both civilian and military personnel.
