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 European CBRNE Center is a research consortium consisting of Umeå university (UmU), The Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI), The City of Umeå, Västerbotten County Council (VLL), The Swedish Fortification Agency (FortV+SkyddC).
The Center initiates and coordinates research and development engaging one or more of its partners. While Umeå University hosts world-leading basic research in microbial research, molecular infection 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 research environment in Umeå, for CBRNE related incidents, one leading Center of Excellence for CBRNE research and development within the EU.
