Finabel promotes and facilitates the interoperability of land forces across the full spectrum of military operations through the harmonisation of concepts, doctrines and procedures in the joint environment.
The organisation produces recommendations, guidelines and research for defence decision-makers according to the member states’ demands. It convenes the leadership of the member states’ armies in annual meetings, enabling both formal and informal knowledge sharing about the development of land forces.
Finabel complements and cooperates with EU and NATO military structures, thereby acting within the overall context of a common European understanding of defence issues. Finabel has 24 member states, and membership is open to all EU member states.
