Welcome to The 14th CBRNe Protection Symposium and the Exhibition of CBRNe protection equipment

The CBRNe Protection symposium is aimed for engaged professionals within the CBRNe-protection field. We encourage everyone to contribute to the symposium through fruitful meetings, elaborated conversations and sharing of recent research.

An extensive exhibition of CBRNe protection equipment will be arranged in connection with the symposium, where industry and institutes display their latest products and research in an encouraging environment. The exhibition will offer a good opportunity for the symposium participants to make themselves acquainted with commercially available state-of-the-art equipment related to CBRNe protection.
