2019 CBRN Summit & Live Exercise
November 11, 2019 - November 13, 2019
Over the past decade, chemical attacks by both state and non-state actors in Syria, the Novichock attack in Salisbury, and the unforgiving Ebola epidemic have brought the CBRN threat to the forefront of international attention, identifying capability gaps and limitations to our existing defence and response structures.
In response to this threat, the Geneva CBRN Summit and Live Exercise, held with support from the Republic and Canton of Geneva and the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport, will bring together leading security professionals and industry leaders to address current CBRN threat trends, the latest technological and doctrinal procedures for improving detection, verification and decontamination of hazardous materials, and a live joint exercise demonstration that will emphasise the importance of interoperability at every level to determine an effective and unified response.
