EDEN at 12th CBW Protection symposium 2016 02/06/2016

The 12th International Symposium on Protection against Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents will take place on Mässvägen 1, Älvsjö, Stockholm, Sweden on 8-10 June 2016 in the Stockholmsmässan centre, which is the largest conference place in the Nordic region.

The purpose of the Symposium is to create an interdisciplinary forum for the mutual exchange of information regarding protection against chemical and biological warfare agent.

The CBW Protection symposium is open for people engaged within the field of chemical and biological protection. As is customary, an exhibition of chemical and biological defence equipment will be arranged in connection with the symposium.

The exhibition will offer a good opportunity for the symposium participants to make themselves acquainted with commercially available state-of-the-art equipment related to CBW- protection.

The following topics in the form of plenary lectures will be provided:

  • Emerging threats and risks
  • CBRN crisis management at national and international levels
  • Education and training in CBRN environments
  • Detection and on-site analysis
  • Identification and forensic analysis
  • Environmental and health threats of military interest
  • Medical management
  • Physical protection
  • Disarmament and non-proliferation
  • Commercial developing technologies

During the event, Astri Polska will disseminate EDEN putting emphasis on the key project target which is to achieve the development of a ‘multi-facetted system of systems approach’ that provides an EU-tailored solution able to improve CBRNe specialized equipment resilience and allow enhanced interoperability between CBRNe operators. This interoperability is supported by the EDEN Project interactive platform consisting of various solutions including hardware, software, procedures and methodologies, delivered by CBRNe domain end-users, major corporate stakeholders, large system integration and technology providers including Small to Medium Enterprises and R&T Organizations.

All the relevant information about the aforementioned system of systems as well as the interactive platform will be available on the EDEN stand no. C07:58 during the whole event from 8 to 10 June 2016.
