Additess successfully participated in EU-CIRCLE (A panEuropean framework for strengthening Critical Infrastructure resilience to climate change – 653824) Kick off Meeting, which took place in 9 and 10 of June 2015 at NCSR “DEMOKRITOS” premises.

The EU-CIRCLE project is funded by the European Commission within the framework of Horizon 2020, DRS9-H2020-2014 “Disaster Resilience & Climate Change topic 1: Science and innovation for adaptation to climate change: from assessing costs, risks and opportunities to demonstration of options and practices”, under Secure Societies 1st call for proposals, the funding framework of the EC for Research and Innovation. The project has a life-span of 36 months and its overall budget is up to 7,283,526.00€.

The concept of EU-CIRCLE concerns the research and determination of the effects of climate change and the relevant risks to heterogeneous and interconnected critical infrastructures. These infrastructures (energy, transport, water, etc.) are the benchmark for modern societies, whereas stopping their uptime may cause broad social and economic consequences.  EU-CIRCLE objective is to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure, in such a way that the consequences of extreme weather events will be treated in the most appropriate manner as well as, to prepare in time to deal with any future climate challenges.

NCSR “DEMOKRITOS” is the project Coordinator and more specifically the Institute of Nuclear & Radiological Sciences and Technology, Energy & Safety (INRASTES). The Center for Security Studies – KEMEA participates in the EU-CIRCLE project as the Hellenic National Contact Point regarding European Critical Infrastructures Protection Programme (EPCIP) in compliance with the EC Directive (DIR 114/2008), among 17 partners including several Meteorological Services, private companies, and Research / Academic Institutions originating from Greece, U.K., France, Norway, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Poland, and Cyprus.
