Project

EU-Circle : A pan-European framework for strenghtening critical infrastructure resilience to climate change

Description:

Climate related hazards have the potential to substantially affect European Critical Infrastructures (CI), particularly the energy, transportation sectors, buildings, marine and water management infrastructure.
The objective of EU-CIRCLE is to move towards infrastructure network(s) that are resilient to today’s natural hazards and climate change. EU-CIRCLE’s scope is to derive an innovative framework for supporting the interconnected European Infrastructure’s resilience to climate pressures based on end-to-end modelling and analysis and validation of results.
This framework will be open & accessible to all interested parties in the infrastructure resilience business.
