Safety and Protection of built Infrastructure to Resist Integral Threats
Terrorist attacks by bombing or CBR (Chemical, Biological and Radiological) are threats with a low likelihood but with extremely high impact.
There is strong need to protect critical infrastructures and utilities (malls, governmental buildings and embassies), train and subway stations against being damaged, destroyed or disrupted by deliberate acts of terrorism, criminal activity and malicious behaviour.
The overall aim of the SPIRIT project is to provide the technology and know-how for the protection of buildings and people against terrorist treat and to minimize the consequences of a terrorist attack in terms of number of casualties/injuries, damage and loss of functionality and services.
SPIRIT aims to provide ready to use tools (vulnerability assessment tool, protection measures selection tool and suite of protection portfolios) for use with new and existing buildings that are operationally viable, infrastructure specific and cost-effective.
We participate as a partner in this ambitious project and will work together with renowned institutions to accomplish the common goals.
