Testbed for Critical In­fra­struc­ture Protection

EU-CIP establishes a novel pan-European knowledge network for resilient infrastructures, which will enable policy makers to shape and produce data-driven evidence-based policies, while boosting the innovation capacity of critical infrastructures (CI) operators, authorities, and innovators (including SMEs). 

In this direction, the partners have already established the European Cluster for Securing Critical infrastructures (ECSCI), which brings together 22 projects that collaborate in CI Resilience. EU-CIP will leverage the capacity, organization, community, and achievements of the ECSCI cluster towards establishing an EU-wide knowledge network with advanced analytical and innovation support capabilities.

Along with analytical capabilities for evidence based policies, the project will organize and offer a rich set of innovation support services to EU projects and other innovators in CI security and resilience. These services will include training, support in business planning and access to finance, as well as support in the validation, standardization, and certification of novel solutions.

The projects outcomes will be integrated and made available through a Knowledge Hub, which will provide a singly entry point to the EU-CIP results. EU-CIP will build a vibrant ecosystem of over 1000 stakeholders around this knowledge-hub. To animate and grow the project’s community, EU-CIP will execute an ambitious set of dissemination activities, including the establishment and organization of an annual conference on Critical Infrastructures Resilience, which will become a flagship event for critical infrastructures.
