One month prior to the third edition of NCT CBRNe Europe, taking place at the Sheraton Hotel in Brussels from February 12-13, the event’s conference program is confirmed, stating a strong engagement of NATO, EU institutions and end-users from countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and many more.
The crisis in Eastern Ukraine, matters of European standardization in the field of CBRN defense, as well as the current Ebola outbreak will thereby be prominent topics of the two-day forum. The conference will thus start with an Opening Plenary on a CBRN threat assessment for Europe with outstanding representatives from NATO such as Wolfgang Rudischhauser (Director, NATO WMD Non-Proliferation Centre), Dr. Victor Korendovych (Deputy Head of Mission Defense Issues, Mission of Ukraine to NATO) and Col. Jiri Gajdos (Director, NATO JCBRN Defense Centre of Excellence).
Afterwards, representatives from European Armed Forces, European institutions such as DGHOME and EDA, Ministries of Health, hospitals, police and fire departments will discuss in the span of two days:
- case studies and SOPs of CBRN defense and response
- challenges of national and European standardization of equipment and SOPs
- most current topics such as the Ebola Outbreak and European preparedness
The first day of the event will furthermore be celebrated during a hosted drinks reception and concert at the Music Village, located next to the magnificent Grand Place in Brussels.
