SUNRISE project aims to strengthen critical infrastructure in Europe

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the vulnerability of vital structures in society in many areas. This is the starting point for the EU-funded project SUNRISE that kicked-off in October.


SUNRISE aims to ensure greater availability, reliability and continuity of critical infrastructures in Europe. Over the next three years, 41 partner organizations will work together to develop a range of novel technologies and solutions to increase the resilience of these critical infrastructures to the impact of future pandemics and other risks. The project is funded by the European research funding program Horizon Europe with a total of 10 million euros and is led by the Spanish branch of global cloud and digital services provider ATOS IT Solutions and Services Iberia SL. The Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology are the two Austrian representatives on the project team.
