INTACT brings together innovative and cutting edge knowledge and experience in Europe in order to develop and demonstrate best practices in engineering, materials construction, planning and designing protective measures as well as crisis response and recovery capabilities. All this will culminate in the INTACT Wiki.
Our approach includes the following:
Framing and Perspectives
Establish an in-depth appreciation of the interface between Critical Infrastructure and Extreme Weather Events and develop a comprehensive understanding of the current state of the art, and provide contextual guidance and theoretical underpinning to other WPs (WP2, WP3, WP4, and WP5).
Climate and Extreme Weather
Collect and analyse trends, patterns and tendencies in extreme weather.
Vulnerability and Resilience of European Critical Infrastructures
Develop a methodological framework for CI vulnerability assessment and an analysis of CI protection measures.
Risk and Risk Analysis
Develop methodology and tools for risk management, and indicate gaps in risk modelling and data availability and seek for approaches and alternatives to close gaps.
Stakeholder Engagement and Dissemination
Collect and disseminate best practices and bring together stakeholders.
Performing five case studies to test the developed methods.
Compose all information and knowledge gained in the project into a comprehensive and practical wiki for CI operators and associated policy makers.
The results and achievements of the INTACT project were demonstrated and discussed during INTACT End Event that took place on March 23rd at Deltares, in Delft.
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped to make the day a success!
Over one hundred participants joined our Consortium to first listen to the inspiring talks by Henk Ovink of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (Special Envoy International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of The Netherlands and Sherpa to the UN / WB High Level Panel on Water), John Sweeney, Emeritus Professor at Maynooth University and Peter Williams, Chief Technology Officer, Big Green Innovations, at IBM. The talks were followed by interactive workshops in the afternoon given by the respective consortium members.

The INTACT wiki is the platform in which the knowledge, tools and methods, developed in the EU project INTACT are shared with the world. On it, you can find information, references, guidance and experiences on how to ensure continued resilience of critical infrastructures in the context of changing climate and related extreme weather events.
