Background

The Nordic Biopreparedness Forum was established in May 2015 by microbiological, medical and molecular experts representing national agencies from the Nordic Countries with the aim to strengthen the biopreparedness diagnostic capability and quality in the Nordic countries, thereby improving our ability to respond to natural outbreaks as well as bioterror incidents involving high-consequence infectious biological agents.
