Research area:

MASC-CBRN is intended to inform the development and implementation of an integrated approach toward CBRN risk management that features regulatory, structural, and normative elements and recognises the need for effective multi-stakeholder engagement. The project aims to:

  • Enhance understanding of the spectrum of possible risks related to the hostile misuse of CBRN knowledge and materials;
  • Identify gaps and intervention points in the governance of CBRN knowledge and materials;
  • Develop practical tools for assisting policy officials and first responders (e.g. law enforcement and border control personnel, emergency services) in implementing strategies and measures for building capacity against the hostile misuse of CBRN knowledge and materials;
  • Promote the use of innovative ICT mechanisms for data sharing and the exchange of best practices for countering the deliberate misuse of CBRN knowledge and materials.
