The annual 22nd International Virtual CBRN Symposium is now taking place in a virtual format resulting from the circumstances and restrictions arising from the ongoing global pandemic. This event, organised with our special interest group CBRN-UK, brings together practitioners, end users, policy makers, and suppliers from UK and overseas to discuss the latest developments in this sector.

ABOUT CBRN SYMPOSIUM

The last 12 months has shown the massive impact arising from a global pandemic. Many of the issues presented by such an event are incredibly analogous to those associated with CBRN-related events. Our Members have previously utilised these capabilities to provide protection, care and recovery during the Ebola crisis. In recent years we have witnessed the continued threat and the continued learning from recent events in Syria, Salisbury and Malaysia, and the use of CBRN-materials to effect targeted-poisonings. The pandemic has highlighted the transferable skills and capabilities necessary to combat the challenges in preparing for mitigating and recovering from events involving such extremely hazardous materials. 

This year’s conference will address CBRN, counterthreat and resilience with a comprehensive speaker programme with representatives from across Government, industry, and academia. 

The event format will, this year, be delivered virtually for 4 - 5 hours each day, over 3 consecutive days from 10 - 12 November, with short breaks over lunch. The delivery format will permit participant engagement / questioning to the speakers from each panel session.
