Project’s aim:
The project IMPROVER develop guidelines and methods that are designed to make critical infrastructure less vulnerable to disasters.

The project is divided into three phases:
1. Collect concepts and experiences at the international level
2. Select, evaluate and apply the concepts in realistic environments (living labs)
3. Develop EU guidelines and methods for critical infrastructures

DBI’s part in the project

DBI leads two work packages. The first work package includes the entire phase 1 of the project, where DBI will organize workshops and interviews, do a literature review and develop a lexicon of definitions. The second is the dissemination and exploitation work package.

DBI also takes part in four other work packages where we will contribute to the development of scenarios, define methods of business continuity management and participate in living labs.
