Project Overview

The project EMILI (“Emergency Management in Large Infrastructures”) is a European project which aims at a new generation of control systems for large Critical Infrastructures (CIs) like power grids and telecommunication systems, airports, railway / metro systems, and oil and gas pipelines. These CI currently undergo substantial technical, economic, organisational, political, and legal changes. Their meaning for all aspects of human society is steadily increasing, and their dependencies from each other are growing.

A new approach to control them is needed in order to improve safety and security of large Infrastructures under these conditions - especially in the case of emergencies and crisis.

This EMILI approach will be based on next generation Web technologies like event processing, active Web, and Semantic Web.

EMILI brings together leading research groups in operational and data management, complex event processing, reactivity, knowledge representation, and SCADA with industrial partners offering use cases and know-how for SCADA in airports, public transport, and power grids. EMILI will strengthen the European research in critical infrastructure emergency management, expanding it with a focus on event-based and executable knowledge, and transfer it into areas of vital socio-economic relevance.
