Educational activities

The Centre for Biosecurity and Biopreparedness (CBB) offers a variety of courses within the topics: biosecurity, bioterrorism, biological weapons threats and biological preparedness.

The course for future biosecurity officers is targeted at biosecurity officers at companies and institutions affected by Act no. 53 of 11 January 2017 on control of animal pathogens and Act No. 474 of 17 June 2008 on securing certain biological agents, delivery systems and related materials. Satisfactory completion of the course is a condition for being approved as a biosecurity officer, and for obtaining a licence from CBB.

Part of the teaching in biological preparedness is an integrated part of the on-site commander training course offered by the Danish Emergency Management Agency and is of a practical nature.
Other courses address students in life sciences and aim at discussing scientific responsibility and misuse potential (dual-use) of certain microorganisms, materials, and techniques.

The Centre also offers specially tailored presentations within the above topics. Please contact the secretariat for booking and further information.
