TPEB CR became member of the consortium of Center for Security Studies (KEMEA) and partner of the new Horizon2020 Project proposal: Pan-European Network of Practitioners in the field of Critical Infrastructures (EU-CIRP)
The EU-CIRP is a pan-european network of Practitioners (end-users) in the specific field of Critical Infrastructure Protection aiming to facilitate communication and interaction of relevant stakeholders from across Europe bringing them together in order to:
- analyze the outcome of European research and innovation projects in the field of CIP with a view to examine the relative potential to uptake or industrialise their results;
- identify capability gaps in security of critical infrastructures and common challenges between sectors and facilities;
- evaluate RDI solutions that could fill in the related capability gaps and elaborate ways to improve their performance in the future, and;
- indicate standardization requirements and priorities that may strengthen the uptake of R&D.
The objective of the envisaged proposal is to develop an active interface between the R&D community represented by Academia, Research Organizations and European Security Industry from one side and the practitioners in the field of critical infrastructure protection, including operators, managers, consultants, businesses, governmental organizations and national or regional authorities from the other side. The purpose of this interaction will be to interact as regards challenges and R&D solutions that may enhance the security and resilience of the European critical infrastructures and to share among CIP stakeholders a joint security culture that will allow to prepare for and recover from any hazard they might face.
