Biological and Chemical agents are widely used in the industrial world; they are often easily available on the open market and therefore may be used deliberately to cause harm, and have been often used as warfare agents. Under this premise, it is clear how important Biological and Chemical Safety and Security are for first responders and other involved professionals, civilian and military organizations and the population. Risk reduction can be achieved by both enhancing the protection of the actors involved and constantly improving the decontamination systems. PPE and CPE, innovative materials, technologies and systems, engineering applications, experimental and applied physics and technical challenges related to CBRNE will be discussed in this section.

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

  • CBRNE Contamination and Decontamination
  • Experimental and Applied Physics for CBRNE Agents Decontamination, Protection, Risks Reduction
  • Engineering Applications for CBRNE Agents Decontamination, Protection, Risks Reduction
  • Technical Challenges on CBRNE
  • Chemical Safety & Security
  • Biosecurity and Biosafety
  • CBRNE Research & Innovation
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Materials, Technologies and Systems
  • Collective Protective Equipment’s (CPE) Materials, Technologies and Systems
  • Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials for Safety & Security
  • Innovative materials for CBRNE Applications
