Description and contribution of the EU CBRN CoE

The National Biosafety Committee of Mongolia  has benefited from the EU CBRN CoE support through the CoE Project 53*. The training series conducted within this project contributed to an enhanced biosafety and biosecurity knowledge of over 250 government officials in Mongolia and built their skills through the hands-on practice sessions and mentorship trainings.

Results and impact

Mongolia organized its first table-top training on "Biosafety and biosecurity for law enforcement", targeting 35 professionals, law enforcement and security staff. 

During P53 implementation, 12 national experts were trained and certified internationally on biosafety and biosecurity issues. Then, the trainers applied the knowledge gained and trained at their own institutions, reaching 250 professionals. Also, relevant institutions benefited from laboratory equipment and PPEs.

Key lessons learned

Many national institutions in Mongolia run laboratory biosafety and biosecurity training programs, but these are implemented and maintained as internal institutional guidelines.

The project showed that continuous, flexible, tailored training is a critical tool in strengthening biosafety and biosecurity, particularly as new risks and needs emerge. To ensure continuous improvement, training shall be standardized from the development to the delivery phase.
