Abstract

e achievements of the European Union targets regarding energy and socio-economic
sustainability are highly dependent on the way risks and vulnerabilities of European operating
infrastructure networks and critical assets are minimised against natural extreme events. e
INFRARISK project is developing reliable stress tests for European critical infrastructure using
integrated modelling tools for decision-support. As a result it is possible to obtain higher infrastructure
networks resilience to rare and low probability extreme events. INFRARISK advances
decision making approaches and leads to beer protection of existing infrastructure whilst achieving
more robust strategies for the development of new ones. INFRARISK expands existing stress
test procedures and adapts them to critical land-based infrastructure, which may be exposed to or
threatened by natural hazards. Integrated risk mitigation scenarios and strategies are employed,
using local, national and pan-European infrastructure risk analysis methodologies. ese take into
consideration multiple hazards and risks with cascading impact assessments. e INFRARISK approach
robustly models spatio-temporal processes with propagated dynamic uncertainties in multiple
risk complexity scenarios. An operational framework with cascading hazards, impacts and
dependent geospatial vulnerabilities is developed. is framework is a central driver to practical
soware tools and guidelines that provide greater support to the next generation of European infrastructure
managers to analyse and handle scenarios of extreme events. e minimisation of the
impact of such events by the supporting tools establishes optimum mitigation measures and rapid
response. INFRARISK delivers a collaborative integrated platform where risk management professionals
access and share data, information and risk scenario results efficiently and intuitively
