Resilience against CBRN threats | 24 September 2014 | Brussels











Dear Sir or Madam


we would   like to draw your attention to the following event:


Resilience against CBRN threats

Improving EU Response Capabilities and Societal Resilience

Policy workshop by the innovation and research consortium of the

FP7-funded ‘PRACTICE’ project and the European Security Round Table

24 September 2014; 9.00h—13.00h

Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU, Rue Montoyer 21, B-1000 Brussels


Effective CBRN crisis management requires a well-coordinated effort by stakeholders from the security industry, academia, policy-makers, as well as emergency response professionals at different levels and in different countries. In particular, since 9/11, the EU has invested substantially in capacity   building in CBRN threat response and civil protection at the European and national levels through policy initiatives.


Nevertheless, the high level of fragmentation between EU member states continues to plague CBRN response capabilities of the union, especially to address transboundary incidents. Therefore, this workshop is designed to discuss the question how to overcome fragmentation and to improve European cooperation focusing on CBRN response tools and on the issue of effective crisis communication.


Against the background of the findings of the FP-7 funded PRACTICE project, the workshop will further examine the benefit of pan-European research on CBRN response and present a toolbox approach that could support emergency professionals in crisis management.


Please make a note of this date. The personal invitation will be sent out to you at the beginning of September.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on 24 September
