Work Package 8 (WP8) organised and participated in an expert workshop on 8-10 March in Norway.
The workshop was attended by members of WP8 and invited experts from a range of organisations including EMCDDA; ECDC; JRC; CBB; DSTL and FFI as well as leading academics. The subject of the workshop was Novel Threats with a particular focus on Synthetic Biology and Synthetic Opioids. Experts engaged with workshop attendees for three days and provided insights into their latest findings. The workshop complemented work being done on two literature reviews and provided an opportunity to examine the relevance of these documents to those most likely to need them.
