For 2023, all NIAG Study EG meetings will be held in-person only at NATO HQ unless there are unforeseen circumstances. As there is no approved VTC technology at NATO Unclassified, no virtual or dial in option will be available. The NIAG Office and national NIAG Delegation agree this situation is not ideal and are strongly encouraging the approval of the required VTC technology by NATO security authorities.
