European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures (ECSCI)
SUNRISE is a member of the European Cluster for Securing Critical Infrastructures (ECSCI). In recent years, there have been increasing instances of cross-border crises, including climate change, natural disasters and global health threats. In these emergency situations, society’s critical infrastructures are crucial and therefore require large-scale planning for preparedness and response. The European Commission has recently funded many projects to work on different aspects of critical infrastructure protection, some of these projects have come together in the ECSCI cluster. While each project has distinct aims and challenges, they all work towards a common goal.
The ECSCI cluster will aim to create synergies and foster emerging disruptive solutions to security issues via cross-projects collaboration and innovation. Research activities will focus on how to protect critical infrastructures and services, highlighting the different approaches between the cluster’s projects and establishing close and productive connections with other closely related and complementary Horizon Europe projects.
The cluster will also organise international conferences and national or international workshops, involving both policy makers, industry and academic, practitioners, and representatives from the European Commission. Currently available results and publications can be accessed by clicking here.
