The European CBRNE center and Umeå University will, with its expertise, be a part of the CTPN "Academic Board" and contribute to the networks goal to influence and create well prepared cities in Europe and the UK. The CTPN consists of multiple cities, strategic leaders, practitioners, and academics. CTPN aims to influence and develop the multi-agency arrangements of cities in preparing for, responding to and recovering from terrorism. The CTPN will do this through research, events and projects.

During the afternoon on September 21th the European CBRNE center will participate in a strategic chemical attack table-top exercise hosted by the CTPN in partnership with the United Nations Office of Counter Terrorism (UNOCT).
