On 20 and 21 September 2023 in Brussels, the EU-CIP consortium successfully held its 1st Annual Conference on Critical Infrastructure Resilience focusing on “Reinventing Resilience”, which was co-organised with the European Cluster for Security Critical Infrastructures (ECSCI).
In this first edition of the conference, our partners introduced the project and its objectives to over 90 stakeholders from the global CIP/CIR ecosystem and sought to establish an open forum for the fruitful exchange of ideas, solutions, research results and challenges. The conference was held in conjuction with a workshop of the European Cluster for Security Critical Infrastructures, in which 11 cluster projects presented their results for strengthening CI resilience.
Over the course of two days, speakers from the European Commission, representatives of European critical infrastructures, researchers, security solution providers, and other participants had the opportunity to engage in discussions covering a diverse range of topics related to resilience in the present landscape, while also evaluating emerging threats and both existing and required solutions.
The conference successfully extracted key takeaways regarding the requirements of the CIP/CIR community, which project partners will take into account in theri next steps. An initial summary of these insights can be found in the event’s press release, with a comprehensive conference report scheduled for release at a later date.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to and attended the conference and hope to see you again next September in the 2nd edition of our event! In the meantime, you can find below all the presentations given during the conference:
