1st TERRIFFIC CBRNe Workshop - Validating scenarios and assessing responders' needs

1st TERRIFFIC CBRNe Workshop - Validating scenarios and assessing responders' needs
Tuesday, November 6 2018 10:00
to Wednesday, November 7 2018 12:30

Welcome to the registration page of the 1st TERRIFFIC CBRNe Workshop

6th-7th November 2018


The objective of this workshop is to establish the practitioners’ needs during the first hours of a Radiological, Nuclear, explosive (RNe) incident.

Based on a set of pre-defined scenarios, attendees will be invited to express their existing needs, in terms of first responders’ ability to:

  • assess the scale of the RNe event;
  • anticipate the evolution of hazard flows, as well as the number of victims to be cared for, decontaminated and medicalised;
  • reduce the exposure of first-responders;

These needs will then be analysed by the TERRIFFIC consortium and used to define the specifications of the TERRIFFIC System.


TERRIFFIC (Tools for early and Effective Reconnaissance in cbRne Incidents providing first responders Faster Information and enabling better management of the Control zone) is a Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission under its Research and Innovation programme. It is a 36 month project, addressing the call topic SEC-05-DRS-2016-2017, which was launched to create synergies between companies in the area of CBRN technologies. The project’s activities started on 01 May 2018 and will end on 30 April 2021.

TERRIFFIC will integrate a set of complementary, interconnected, modular software and hardware components into a comprehensive System (drones, robots, dispersion models, information management software….) to deliver a step change in the effectiveness of first responders during the first hours of an RNe incident.

The workshop will be hosted by the French Fire Brigade National Federation, Paris on 6th-7th November 2018.


Please REGISTER  to this Workshop by 19th October 2018 by clicking on the "ATTENDING" button below

(section registration at the bottom of the page).




  • 6th November 2018: 10:00 am – 5.30 pm
  • 7th November 2018: 09:00 am – 12:30 pm

During the workshop, the participants will be divided into three working groups, which will focus on the following areas:

Working Group Description
WG 1 - Best available technologies and employment concepts or combined use  This WG will define the best combination of existing or emergent technologies to provide detection, identification, quantification for early characterisation of RAD sources
WG 2 - Evaluation criteria for sensors and analysis tools This WG will define the various evaluation criteria and their combination, used to measure how the TERRIFFIC System cover the scope of end users' needs
WG 3 - Definition of useful information both on the field and in the Command & Control Unit This WG will define the format and the contents of the tactical and technical information as well as the data stemming from the situational analysis using AI tools. The various displays of the tactical data and the decision-making supports will have to take into account the level of command as well as the professional background of the operators (police, fire brigades, medic, military)

You will be offered the opportunity to choose in which working group you would like to participate (two options possible). However, in order to secure a balanced participation in each working group, the organising committee may assign you to a different group than the one you selected. It is also possible not to select any working group and in that case, the organising committee will assign you to a working group.
