The European Security and Defence College (ESDC), which has been in operation since September 2004, is the embodiment of an old idea. This 'virtual' college, made up of a network of national institutions, has as its main aim the training of officials at the strategic level in the field of European security and defence policy, in order to promote a common understanding of the policy. Its objectives and general functioning will be discussed in Brussels in the coming months, to ensure its continuance.
