European CBRNE Center
The European CBRNE Center at Umeå University is a center for research within the areas of security and vulnerability, in particular incidents with chemical (C), biological (B), radiological/nuclear (RN) and explosive (E) substances.
The Center initiates and coordinates national and international research and development projects for improved CBRNE crisis management and preparedness as well as it organizes customized CBRN training and exercises. The partner organisations contribute to such projects with their infrastructure and their expertise. While Umeå University hosts world-leading basic research in microbiology, molecular infections medicine, population studies, environmental and energy research, the FOI and Umeå University Hospital host applied medical and science research of direct relevance for CBRNE security.
The aim for the European CBRNE Center is to make the Umeå-based research environment for CBRNE-related incidents a leading Center of Excellence for CBRNE research and development within the EU.
