The CBRN&HF CapTech meetings are held 3 times per year, with a duration of 2-4 days. All the information is shared in its Workspace. Prior or right after a CapTech meeting, a workshop or seminar might take place. The workshops are participative and their objectives are to achieve concrete outcomes, such as the preparation of a project or fulfilment of an extraordinary request.
To become a CBRN&HF CapTech member (CapTech Governmental Expert - CGE - or CapTech non-Governmental Expert - CnGE), please follow the instructions included in the R&T General site, and be aware that your request will be forwarded to the relevant CapTech National Coordinator - CNC. The approval of the CNC will be needed to become a CGE or CnGE, and also for your participation in a CapTech event.
In 2012, within the CBRN protection part of the CapTech CBRN and Human Factors, the Joint Investment Programme on CBRN protection was developed. The Capability needs were translated into R&T goals for the JIP CBRN, prioritised and calls for proposals were conducted resulting in 14 selected projects which are now finalised.
The CBRN Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) was approved in 2018 and currently the Human Factors SRA is being developed.
Based on the SRAs, any CapTech member can propose ideas for new activities (projects, workshops, seminars, etc.) at any meeting. The active involvement of non-governmental members in proposing solutions for governmental needs, with a consistent and systematic ground for dialogue can definitely encourage cooperation.
CBRN&HF CapTech Portfolio:
The CapTech CBRN protection is currently discussing four new Cat B projects.
In the Human Factors domain, one new Cat B is under preparation while one project is in its final phase in addition to developing the Human Factors SRA.
