Summary

Security and quality of life in industrialized countries depend on continuous and coordinate performance of a set of infrastructures (energy systems, ICT systems, transportation etc) which can be therefore defined critical infrastructures (CI). STRUCTURES – Strategies for The impRovement of critical infrastrUCTUre

Resilience to Electromagnetic attacks aims at analysing possible effects of electromagnetic (e.m.) attacks, and in particular of intentional e.m. interference (IEMI), on such CIs, at assessing their impact for our defence and economic security, at identifying innovative awareness and protection strategies and at providing a picture forthe policy makers on the possible consequences of an electromagnetic attack.
