EU-VRi and Argonne National Laboratory (US) sign a MoU in the field of resilience of critical infrastructures !





Early 2018, the European Virtual Institute for Integrated Risk Management (EU-VRi)  and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of strengthening their collaboration in the field of resilience of critical infrastructures.

Argonne National Laboratory is a science and engineering research national laboratory operated by the University of Chicago Argonne LLC for the United States Department of Energy.

This new collaboration aims to develop the mechanisms and processes to promote research, academic exchange and cooperation for the mutual goal of improving safety, security and sustainability aspects of resilience of critical infrastructures. This exchange of information will include resilience related indicators, assessment methods, tools, auditing for the improvement of protection of critical infrastructures.

News Photo The quintessence of the Resilience Assessment Methodology in the SmartResilience project is presented here!



The SmartResilience project provides a new methodology for assessing and managing resilience of critical infrastructures, such as energy and water supply, transportation networks and similar. The term “resilience” of an infrastructure, describes its ability to cope with possible adverse scenarios/events that can potentially lead to significant disruptions in its operation/functionality. Examples of scenarios are, for instance, terrorist attacks stopping airport operation or cyber-attacks destroying the financial systems. Coping with these scenarios means preparing for them, being able to absorb/withstand their impacts, recovering optimally from their impacts and adapting to the continuously changing conditions. In practice, an end-user essentially wants to know answers to the questions below, flowing the resilience assessment workflow.

Presented is ''10 sentences for end-users". In order to display it, please click on the picture below.

 

More elaborated version (.pptx presentation) showing the tangible results of the work done so far in the project can be accessed here:

Prof. Dr. A. Jovanovic presented the lecture: “Fooled by (past) resilience: Why do we overestimate resilience of our critical infrastructures” at University of Wuppertal (BUW).
News Photo Mr. Jovanovic was invited as guest lecturer for the public safety lecture series at BUW. His presentation focused on the state of the art knowledge about resilience quantification developed within the SmartResilience project. The Horizon 2020 research project is elaborating a new advanced resilience assessment methodology in order to measure and increase resilience of smart critical infrastructures (SCIs) within Europe and around the world. The lecture is available on Youtube (for the BUW channel see Here) and Facebook.
