The Italian University of Rome “Tor Vergata” conducted its 4th International CBRNe Workshop focused on “Countering Radiological and Nuclear Threats”. The workshop took place at the Istituto Superiore Anticendi (National Fire Academy) in Rome on 8th November 2018. Just a preliminary remark: The “e” in “CBRNe” abbreviates “explosives” (Improvised Explosive Devices). However, “CBRNe” is not a NATO recognized abbreviation. Objectives of the workshop were to give a detailed overview of the current CBRNe risk scenarios whilst centering on radiological and nuclear scenarios.
