What we do
The European Biosecurity Awareness Raising Network (EUBARnet) connects universities and organizations in the EU that are working on raising the awareness of life scientists on biosecurity and dual-use concerns. It aims at promoting information for students and young scientists, increasing the participation of scientists in policy debate, and appraise the European Commission on the status of education on biosecurity.
This is pursued through the preparation of multidisciplinary informational materials and organization of events and seminars. The Partner Organizations and Experts are from various backgrounds and provide expertise on the scientific, ethical, policy, legal and environmental aspects of biosecurity, in a multidisciplinary approach.
EUBARnet is realized with the financial support from the Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme (ISEC) of the European Commission – Directorate – General Home Affairs. It is Coordinated by Landau Network Centro Volta and partnered by the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra, the Department of Animal and Human Biology of the University of Turin, the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Uppsala and the Department of Biology of the University of Milan
