Research project EDEN was large project under the 7th Framework programme and was completed in 2016. It was a demonstrator project and the result of CBRNEmap.
The aim of project EDEN was to increase resilience against CBRNE-incidents through a project driven by the end users of the tools and resources needed during an incident.
During project EDEN, tools and systems developed in previous EU-projects were to be integrated and adjusted to suit the end-users’ needs and abilities. All to increase the capacity of organizations in different member states to handle CBRNE incidents. At the same the same time, the aim for EDEN was to increase collaboration across borders and standardize CBRN management. As planned, the result was a Toolbox of Toolboxes, or a resource bank of validated tools for CBRNE response, management, etc. Long-term, the idea was for the project to contribute to a sustainable market with affordable CBRNE resources. The European CBRNE Center focused mainly on the ethical aspects of the CBRNE field and the legal evaluation of the project results. The project consortium consisted of 39 organisations from 15 countries and was coordinated by BAE Systems (Operation) Ltd, England.
