2017 ENCIRCLE Workshop Announcement



About the event:

ENCIRCLE is a 4-year project designed to improve competitiveness and procurement of CBRNe technologies for the advantage of both European CBRNe industry and practitioners and most importantly for improvement of EU resilience to new CBRNe attacks and threats. In order to achieve main project objectives, which include:
– create an open and neutral EU CBRNe cluster,
– provide a sustainable and flexible vision and roadmap for the development of the European CBRNe market and innovations,
– provide integration with platforms (systems, tools, services, products) by proposing standardized interfaces and future EU standards to integrate CBRNe technologies and innovations developed from the Part b Research Innovation Action projects,
– support CBRNe safety, security and defence commercial and market services,
– improve and facilitate European CBRNe dissemination and exploitation,
several activities have been overseen among which the most important are the ENCIRCLE workshops organised yearly by ENCIRCLE partners. The yearly ENCIRCLE workshops will allow open dialogue and information exchange between project partners and members of the communities.
