NAVFAC EURAFCENT Announces Europe Tri-Services Industry-Government Engagement Workshop

Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Europe Africa Central (EURAFCENT) announced the opening of registration for the Europe Tri-Services Industry-Government Engagement Workshop scheduled for Feb. 27-29, 2024, in Naples, Italy.

NAVFAC EURAFCENT, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Europe District, Air Force Mission and Support Center Det. 4, and the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) are co-hosting the Industry-Government Engagement Workshop to address issues in the European Theater with design and construction industry partners to discuss upcoming programs and provide the opportunity to openly review challenges faced and develop solutions to our most common issues.

“This is a great opportunity to hear from current and future partners about the processes that are currently being used when working with us here in Europe,” Barry Forbes, NAVFAC EURAFCENT’s chief engineer, said. “This engagement can help us be more innovative as we look for ways to improve our processes and programs to execute our mission support to the fleet and to our nation’s strategic goals.”

Topics for discussion have been cultivated by the services and from a survey of SAME members working in Europe.

Attendees will be able to delve into the diverse operational perspectives of the three services, gaining insights into their respective approaches and acquiring valuable feedback.

“We are excited about the prospect of fostering stronger partnerships that will undoubtedly contribute to mutual success and innovation,” Forbes said. “In order for the Tri-Services engineering community to accomplish our missions, events like this play a crucial role in shaping future collaborations, refining processes, and establishing effective procedures.”

Space is limited. Only two representatives per private industry company may participate to allow for broad industry representation. Companies may register additional representatives if the event is not at capacity by Feb. 9. Visit the Europe Tri-Services Industry-Government Engagement Workshop – SAME to register.
