The evolution of and increase in Safety and Security threats requires an improvement to the emergency systems to deal with crisis, including those connected to ordinary and non-conventional events. In every industrial country there are multiple entities with highly-specialized teams in very specific fields, but the complexity of the events requires professionals that not only have specific know-how, but also expertise in the relevant areas. To face an emergency properly highly specialized first responders and CBRNE advisors to the decision makers require comprehensive competences in the field of CBRNE safety and security. Active learning is a key element to CBRNE awareness and preparedness and represents two critical factors that need to be improved.

The session is aimed at bringing together researchers and experts in the following fields:

  • Active Learning
  • Education Methodologies
  • CBRNE Awareness and Preparedness
