Italy will be training new experts in the field of chemical and nuclear security. The University of Tor Vergata and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have signed an agreement to set up a Master’s on Protection against Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNe) events. The course will prepare professional First Responders to face CBRNe threats.
Promoting security is an Italian tradition
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is delighted with the new initiative, which reflects Italy’s traditional focus on promoting security and the role of the human factor in preventing proliferation.
This same goal is being pursued in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Nuclear Security School at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste to train experts from developing countries on nuclear security issues.
