Joint Action and 2nd Annual Workshop a success!

INCLUDING Project organized in Athens (Greece), from 22 to 23 June 2021, a multidisciplinary field exercise (Joint Action). The organizing institution was the Hellenic Ministry of Defence (HMOD), project's contributor, with the support of Joint CBRN Defence Company. The Joint Action was conducted in Piraeus commercial port (Piraeus Port Container Terminal).

The Athens CBRNe Joint Action dealt with counteracting an attempt to smuggle radioactive sources from the port.

It was a full-scale exercise designed to establish a learning environment for participants to be trained in emergency response plans, policies and procedures in such situations.

The respective Joint Action plan was produced at the direction of HMOD with the input, advice, and assistance of WP2, 3 and 4 contributors.
