Joint EC-EDA workshop on the CBRN European Framework Cooperation

"Civ-Mil research cooperation: achievements & future challenges"

The objective of the workshop is to report for the first time on progress achieved between the European Commission (EC) and the European Defence Agency (EDA) under the newly established European Framework Cooperation (EFC) in the area of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) research. The EC FP7 Security Research Programme and the EDA CBRN Joint Investment Programme (JIP CBRN) have indeed been specifically identified in 2011 to serve as a pilot case for exploring further potential and concrete CIV-MIL research synergies.

This workshop is jointly organized and chaired by the European Commission (EC) and the European Defence Agency (EDA), as a side event of the Security Conference at HOMSEC 2013.

The workshop will bring together a wide range of EU Civilian and Defence research partners, end-users, authorities, SMEs and larger Industries.

Current challenges and future European perspectives on CIV-MIL research synergies will also be discussed.
