As of 1 October 2010, more then 20 CBRN projects have already been launched or selected for funding within the FP7 Security theme, contributing to enhance the future civilian capacity of the EU to respond to a CBRN attack or a CBRN incident.

Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) research is a major player in the European FP7 Security theme.

This first FP7 CBRN workshop organised by the European Commission (DG ENTR) will be focused on 3 objectives:

  1. Session 1: 'The evolving/new European dimension of CBRN research', inviting relevant EC services and the EDA to share their own links and interest with FP7 CBRN research.
  2. Session 2: 'How do we ensure that end users engage fully with those carrying out the research?', enhancing the challenging link between CBRN operators (demand side) and beneficiaries (supply side).
  3. Session 3: 'FP7 CBRN Demonstration programme: The way ahead.' defining a roadmap for a large research demonstration programme on CBRN, in conjunction with the 2 ongoing feasibility projects DECOTESSC1 and CBRNEMAP .

Registration is open to CBRN end users (first responders, civil protection, police, ambulance services,...) and FP7 grant beneficiaries or CBRN research stakeholders including industry, SMEs, public and private research centres. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 120 participants.
