Horizon Europe - Cluster 3 - Destination 3: Resilient Infrastructure
|Parent program||Horizon Europe|
|Link to the program||ec.europa.eu|
Content of program
The cluster "Civil Security for Society" supports the implementation of EU policy priorities in the areas of security, cyber security and civil protection. The aim is to provide new knowledge and innovation to help responders and managers manage and prevent criminal activities, terrorist threats, cyber threats and crises and disasters.
Infrastructure preparedness and protection is a technologically complex domain, affected by various global developments and thus needs to be supported by targeted security research. This destination aims at supporting the protection of European infrastructures with relevant projects, enabling public and private actors to meet current and emerging challenges.
This cluster responds to the challenges arising from persistent security threats, including cybercrime, as well as natural and man-made disasters.
