Education for Prevention and Response
Implementation of control regimes and general nonproliferation commitments, an issue of big relevance to every nation requires highly trained human capital. Governments should be prepared to cope with threats derived from potential use of WMD. Finally, it is clear the importance of educated societies concerning the overall global and local risk reduction. All these aspects involve people –government and privates- playing different roles.

In this sense, the purpose of the program is to help develop awareness, specific skills, an integrated view on the matter, and a prevention and response mindset.
It is composed by a set of projects and activities at universities and other learning environments, which meet different needs, from highly involved people to public. Also includes scholarships and incentives.

Activities are open to individuals who may require this knowledge as a tool to perform their job tasks, such as personnel from government agencies and Congress, their advisors, armed forces, people involved in prevention and response planning and actions, those who belong to scientific and academic institutions, media and, by extension, to those with a particular vocation or interest on disarmament and nonproliferation issues.
