Critical infrastructure attacks - is Europe ready?

BY GEORGIOS GIANNOPOULOS
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

The systems that make our every-day lives possible are highly interdependent. Transport, communication systems, energy and water utilities rely on each other. Natural disasters or man-made hazards can lead to a cascade of these critical infrastructure failures, with alarming effects. In this talk, JRC researcher Georgios Giannopoulous explains what systems are in place to protect critical infrastructure so that the end-users do not need to worry about potential problems.

The invisible work against terrorism

BY MARTIN LARCHER
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Terrorists are invisible. It is impossible to find a terrorist in a crowded place full of people. Terrorism is based on fear. This fear might prevent people from doing things that they would normally do, going to places they used to visit, or just enjoying life. We might feel powerless with the knowledge that there is not much we can do about this threat. But in reality, a lot is being done. In this presentation, JRC researcher Martin Larcher talks about the invisible work to protect people from terrorism

BY TOM DE GROEVE
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters are scary and they can cause a lot of damage. Sometimes it seems that things are only getting worse, which might lead us to have a pessimistic view of the world. In this talk, JRC scientist Tom de Groeve explains how EU scientists continue to study disasters, and how this knowledge makes our society more resilient.
