SmartResilience Selection of CORE DCL ISSUES & INDIA Workshop in Brussels
News Photo SmartResilience Project Partners met in Brussels on September 11-12, 2018 in order to discuss the CORE list of issues and the INDIA CASE STUDY.  On the first day, Prof Jovanovic introduced the concept of the CORE dynamic checklist (DCL) and presented the SmartResilience tool. During this day, the workshop participants reviewed the issues and finalized the CORE DCL. On the second day, a tabletop exercise was conducted to simulate cascading and ripple effects on combined scenarios (CASE STUDY INDIA).

SmartResilience Open Workshop and CIRAB Meeting
News Photo SmartResilience Project Partners, Members of Critical Infrastructure Resilience Advisory Board, insurance experts, representatives of different research institutes as well as end-users met in Potsdam on May 29, 2018 in order to discuss the progress of the work done in the project and align the further line of action for the remaining 11 months of the Project duration.

Around 40 participants from all over the world (China, USA, France, etc.) gathered together in the premises of Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam. During the 1-day workshop, the most tangible results of the work done in the project have been presented. Project Partners higlighted the specific issues tackled by theirs Case Study, showed indicators which they have selected for the assessment as well as their contribution to the integerated network/ tool developed within the SmartResilience. Furthermore, application of SR Tool on other EU DRS project has been presented by dr Emanuelle Bellini, coordinator of RESOLUTE.  
In the second part of the meeting, Frederic Petit from Argonne National Laboratory, presented the need to promote a global approach to resilience. 
At the end, chair of Critical Infrastructure Resilience Advisory Board Prof. Claudio Rolandi and coordinator of the project, Prof. Aleksandar Jovanovic led the fruitful panel discussion about the challenges related to resilience management, perspective on enterprise resilience and engagement of the relevant politicians.

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.

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.
