The 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.

Over 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.
