In an ever changing international scenario, with non-conventional and CBRNE threats on the rise, the need for Global Partnership focused on Safety and Security is essential. Cooperation among international entities is a key aspect of the preparedness and ability to counteract CBRNE events, whose effects could often cross borders, jeopardizing the safety of the population of different countries. Non-Proliferation and Disarmament initiatives are a fundamental means in reducing the risks connected to the proliferation and potential use of CBRNE agents.  International Response Systems allow improved public Safety and Security in these situations.

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

  • Non-Proliferation and Disarmament;
  • International Cooperation and Response;
  • Global Partnerships for Safety and Security;
  • Evolution of the CBRNE Threats;
  • Terrorist Threats;
  • Improvised Explosive Device (IED), Explosives Ordinance Disposals (EOD), Non-Conventional Threats (NCT);
  • Explosives and Dirty Bombs;
  • Dual Use.
