Abstract

The paper highlights the practical aspects of new EU project SmartResilience and its application in Finland. The basic idea of the project is that modern critical infrastructures are becoming increasingly "smarter" (e.g. cities). Making the infrastructures "smarter" usually means making them smarter in normal operation and use, but it has to be checked if these smart critical infrastructures (SCIs) will behave equally "smartly" and be "smartly resilient" also when exposed to extreme threats, such as extreme weather disasters or, e.g., terrorist attacks. Similarly, the question is, if making existing infrastructure "smarter" is achieved by making it more complex, would it also make it more vulnerable? Would this affect resilience of an SCI as its ability to anticipate, prepare for, adapt and withstand, respond to, and recover? These questions are tackled by the project, which plans answer these questions in several steps: by (#1) identifying existing indicators suitable for assessing resilience of SCIs; (#2) identifying new "smart" resilience indicators (RIs) - including those from Big Data; (#3) developing a new advanced resilience assessment methodology based on smart RIs ("resilience indicators cube", including the resilience matrix); (#4) developing the interactive "SCI Dashboard" tool; and (#5) applying the methodology/tools in eight case studies, integrated under one virtual, smart-city-like, European case study. One of these case studies will take place in Finland, dealing with modern systems of energy supply.
