Deliverable D3.6.1 International Benchmarks for at least two LCCI
The current globalisation enforces the setup of cross-border and cross-sector Large Complex Critical Infrastructures (LCCI). In some critical infrastructure sectors, this process has only recently started in the EU. In other sectors, such as, e.g., gas supplies, the cross-border infrastructures are already established connecting producers and consumers via cross-border transport pipelines. The vulnerability of end-to-end service provision using LCCI across borders is increased considerably as different laws, different national measures, different technologies, and multiple commercial operators are linked together. Therefore, the number of possible “gaps” for propagation of cascading effects is increased. Additionally, the recovery processes after a breakdown are significantly more difficult, because a more heterogeneous set of partners is involved in the necessary synchronisation operations. The IRRIIS project aims to provide middleware improved technologies (MIT) to decrease such cascading risk.
