On Wednesday 13th April, the University of Rome Tor Vergata (UNITOV), together with the other partners of the RESIST project (SAFE, IAI, NBC Defence School, VVF, PROECO, ENEA) participated to the project closure event, which took place in Rome at IAI Offices. In parallel, the proposal for a standardised CBRN label generated by the partners of the project was presented in front of DG HOME, other EC representatives and partners of other EU funded projects. These events marked the end of all project activities, which exceeded all expectations and allowed RESIST to become a successful project recognised as such also by EC representatives.
The goal of project RESIST (REsilience Support for critical Infrastructures through Standardized Training on CBRN) was to engage public and private operators in the set-up and testing of a tailor-made CBRN capacity building programme for the creation of CBRN Intervention Groups composed by CI/public spaces operators, personnel, trained and equipped to operate in CBRN contaminated environments.
During the closure event, the work performed and the results obtained by the partners were positively assessed and discussed. Specifically, UNITOV had a central role in the design of the training curricula and in the definition of the operating procedures for the operators and personnel of the CIs involved, and it participated actively to the operational training and simulated exercise conducted during the course of the project.
