Preparedness Response for CBRNE INCidEnts
Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high-yield Explosive (CBRNE) events have the potential to destabilize governments, create conditions that exacerbate violence, or promote terrorism. These events can quickly overwhelm the infrastructure and capability of the responders.
PRINCE aims to support first aid responders and law enforcement/security authorities by providing them with an evidence base for strategic level decisions related to prevention, detection, Respiratory Protection, Decontamination and response to CBRN event.
PRINCE aims to produce a roadmap based on EU & International Actions plans and recommendations by creating a PRINCE catalogue of training curricula in line with the INTERNATIONAL CBRN TRAINING CURRICULUM and EU, based on best practises and international proven CBRNE exercises.
PRINCE aims to produce CBRNE SOPs and plans for two incidents (Chemical and Radiological) in two major exercises (Greece, Portugal). The exercises will be performed with representatives from all responders to (1) share information on CBRN threat and risks; (2) exchange best practices; (3) perform joint training and exercises.
PRINCE will provide recommendations to CBRNE equipment, systems, and training content and to develop ICT tools (E-training platform, CBRN Emergency system).
PRINCE aims to enhance protection of public spaces, community and infrastructure by sharing project outcomes with wider audience through online information material, presentations to public events and media.
Short term beneficiaries are CBRN responders and authorities from GR, PT, CY, FL and DE, Medium term beneficiaries: EU CBRN authorities, stakeholders,
Long term beneficiaries: Citizens, public authorities, CBRNE technology partners, business, Government advisors, R&D and industry.
PRINCE increases sustainability through cross-border / cross-sectoral collaboration and by exchanging best practices and knowledge on joint exercises and training courses between five member states.
