  1. 1. The European Commission’s science and knowledge service Joint Research Centre Training and awareness raising in Critical Infrastructure Protection & Resilience Georgios Giannopoulos, Marianthi Theocharidou, Alessandro Lazari Directorate E: Space, Security and Migration Unit E2: Technology Innovation in Security
  2. 2. 2 DG JRC Role: facts & figures • 6 locations in 5 Member States • 1 500 core research staff, out of around 3 000 total staff • Research fellows and visiting scientists • 42 lаrge scale research facilities, more than 110 online databases • More than 100 economic, bio- physical and nuclear models
  3. 3. 3 The security landscape Final implementation report of the EU Internal Security Strategy 2010-2014 COM(2014) 365 final Towards a stronger European disaster response: the role of civil protection and humanitarian assistance, COM(2010)600 The EU Action Plan on combating terrorism The Security Industry Policy Action Plan COM (2012) 417 Cybersecurity Strategy of the European Union: An Open, Safe and Secure Cyberspace COM (2013) 1 The EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings 2012–2016, COM(2012) 286 European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP), COM(2006)786 EU Maritime Security Strategy (adopted by Council - General Affairs on 24/6/2014)

  5. 5. 5 Security of critical infrastructures is a national competence Geographical – sectoral interdependencies Infrastructures of European dimension Action at EU level
  6. 6. 6 We’ve a gap… •There's a lack of multi-disciplinary and harmonized training and education at EU level in the field of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience. Why a training session in CIPR?
  7. 7. 7 • Preparedness: “We will then support …. awareness raising, training, joint courses….” • Annex V Roadmap: Agree on preparedness measures, such as contingency planning, stress tests, awareness raising, training programmes, joint courses, exercises and/or staff exchanges. DG HOME (lead), JRC (support) and selected stakeholders, Starting in the second half of 2013 EPCIP: Addressing the gap
  8. 8. 8 Training is an instrument Equal level of security & resilience Improve capacities Improve Awareness Sharing Knowledge Build trusted communities
  9. 9. 9 JRC & experts’ consolidated knowledge offered in training Share Structure Analyze JRC activities CIPS projects Trusted networks (e.g. TNCEIP, ERNCIP) Information sharing activities Supporting Commission Services FP7 & H2020 Projects Why the JRC?

  11. 11. 11 What has been done till now? • Training to EU Member States (2015) • Training to operatos of infrastructures (2016)
  12. 12. 12 Take home messages • A long process: Lots of planning and time is needed • An international organization may act as a catalyst • Trust building is fundamental • Involvement of Academia is important but needs to be balanced with practical examples • Operators-to-operators training is a key to success • Use of practical examples – table top exercises
  13. 13. 13 Future? • Take on board the feedback from the stakeholders and improve the curriculum • Disseminate it to the community as a best practice • What to do and what to be avoided on the basis of our experience • Develop an online training platform to be used by the community
