Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society (CCMS)
The CCMS conducts its activities through networks of national
experts. Expert teams funded nationally, tackle problems
affecting the environment and the quality of life through
3-5 year pilot studies, shorter term projects, conferences,
workshops and roundtables.
60 pilot studies have been completed, resulting in over
250 scientific publications addressing problems such as
defence-related environmental issues, pollution control,
environmental security and regional studies.
