European Institute, the consortium partner from Bulgaria, successfully organised the DroneWISE Training of Trainers (ToT) on August 30th, 2022. The training took place via Zoom and was attended by 30 practitioners from different structures of The Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Bulgaria (MoI), such as the National Police, Border Police, Counter-Terrorism Chief Directorate, Fight Against Organized Crime Directorate, Fire Safety and Protection of the Population, Police Academy.
The ToT included the presentation of the training portal which generated significant interest among participants.
The participants in the ToT evaluated positively the Dronewise training platform and appreciated the opportunities it created to train their colleagues and promote the project and its results. Some of them shared the opinion that the training modules would help security practitioners to design and deliver a strategic response to drone threats, as well as apply common policies to protect against the malevolent use of drones. All ToT participants provided valuable feedback and agreed that common procedures for drone protection at regional, European and global level were necessary.
