About the Project
Motivation, Objectives, Groups, Results
The transport network in Europe is probably one of the most important systems for our economy and society. Trans-national transport routes and the connecting hubs play a vital role in goods traffic and the supply of the population. Critical road infrastructures can have a bottle-neck function. Any disturbance to these structures could lead to negative consequences for the population and economy as a whole.
- Public/private owners/operators of road/rail infrastructures and transport hubs in Europe
- Authorities responsible for the implementation of the regulatory framework for safety/security of transport infrastructures
- Scientific community, dealing with risk assessment for transport infrastructure
- Identification of all relevant threats for transport infrastructures
- Determine criteria for the identification of important transport infrastructures in Europe, based on common aspects
- Develop a qualitative assessment procedure of different transport infrastructure with respect to a set of different threats
- Conceptualization of a comprehensive and structured all-hazard guide for critical transport infrastructures in Europe.
By employing an all-hazard approach, the project AllTraIn identifies all relevant threats for transport infrastructures in Europe. Intentional and unintentional man-made hazards as well as natural hazards are taken into account and compiled into a “comprehensive all-hazards catalogue for critical infrastructures”.
The output is a guide for owners and operators of transport infrastructures in Europe, which enables the identification and assessment of the relevant threats for specific critical infrastructure.
