Season Closing at Academy of Sciences
"You deserve appreciation for the hard job you perform every day. As a result of your efforts hundreds of multinational medical service members got trained in our courses, thousands of others had access to the common military medical knowledge and the COE really became the military medical knowledge hub of the community." - said COL Dr. László Fazekas, Director of the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (MILMED COE) expressing gratitude to the Centre's staff members in his opening speech on the Season Closing Ceremony, held at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on 15 December 2016.
Colonel Fazekas also thanked the Nations for their permanently increasing support to COE as well as to the family members for being strong basis. Beside the family members of the COE Staff, many distinguished guests attended the ceremony where they could enjoy the wonderful music of the Hegedős Folkmusic Band. The Hegedős Band is one of the three artistic divisons of the Hungarian Heritage and Prima Primissima Prize winner Honvéd Ensemble.
“The next year is full of challenges and the ambition of the Centre of Excellence is to provide expertise and excellent support to Nations, to NATO and its partners. We will serve as NATO’s military medical open gates to build further the military medical network, knowledge centre function." - said the Director closing his thougths.
