Medical Conference


The FFF MEDICAL Conference would like to follow up on previoius successful editions. As of today, we are facing evolving threats from both state and non-state actors. The latest military invasion in Ukraine, dramatic spread of Covid-19 pandemic within last three years, cyber-attacks on some soft/non-military targets, continuous refugee migration, etc. have demonstrated that national/EU/NATO resilience is not anymore only a military responsibility but that we shall focus on the whole society capabilities.

Civil-military cooperation and crisis preparedness of all stakeholders within medical areas have been proven essential, after security challenges over the world during past years, during past 2 years when almost the whole world population has been facing unprecedented pandemic situation.

The latest invasion of Ukraine territory and military conflict between RUSSIA and UKRAINE put in the foreground the area of medical emergency and battlefield medicine. A victim in a life-threatening situation is a big challenge for medical services especially in cases that assistance is to be provided in conditions that threaten rescuers.

The event provides ideal platform for sharing the latest information in the field of battlefield medicine, resilience of our society and crisis management among subject matter experts within NATO Nations/Partners, EU and non-EU members.


The MEDICAL Conference 2022 will focus on the following areas:


BG Zoltán BUBENÍK, MD – Director, Military Medicine Division, CZE; Ex-Chairman, Committee of the Chiefs of Military Medical Services in NATO (COMEDS)
COL (GS) Petr KRÁL, MD – Director, Medical Services and Development Department, Military Medicine Division
COL Radoslav KRUPKA, MD – Deputy Director, Military Health Institute Prague, CZE
COL (GS) Hynek SCHVACH, PhD – Head, Faculty of Military Health Sciences, Department of Military Service Organization and Management, University of Defence, CZE
