The Mediterranean & Black Sea Security Practitioners’ Network
The aim of MEDEA is to engage a critical mass of security practitioners and actors including first aid responders, border guards, national police, civil protection teams, humanitarian workers, defence entities and other interested stakeholders in efficient cooperation with cross-discipline entities from other countries. The expected result would be the effective response to all security threats common to the Mediterranean and Black Sea region.
The requirements from all four communities will be featured as inputs (regional operational needs) in the Mediterranean and Black Sea Security Research and Innovation Agenda (MSRIA).

PReparedness against CBRNE threats through cOmmon Approaches between security praCTItioners and the VulnerablE civil society
The main goal of the PROACTIVE project is to enhance preparedness against and response to a CBRNe incident through a better harmonisation of procedures between various categories of practitioners, and a better understanding of the needs of vulnerable citizen groups.
Within PROACTIVE, a Practitioner Stakeholder Advisory Board (PSAB) and a Civil Society Advisory Board (CSAB) have been created and are under continuous expansion.
The project activities and research methods include several systematic reviews, surveys, focus-groups, workshops and field exercises for which the PSAB and CSAB will provide valuable insight.
The main objective of the MELODY project is to define, develop and deploy a harmonised CBRN training curriculum for first responders and medical staff, including ambulance drivers, paramedics and emergency room (ER) personnel. The target group includes members of agencies that are responsible for dealing with emergencies, being unintentional or intentional releases of CBRN, which require immediate action. The training curriculum should provide a clear picture of the possible consequences and effects and how to act together in a safe and effective and efficient way.LEARN MORE
