The THREATS (Terrorist attacks on Hospitals : Risk and Emergency Assessment, Tools & Systems - FP7-CIPS) project aims to increase the resilience of EU hospitals as critical infrastructure by improving their protection capability and security awareness against terrorist attacks. It’s aims are:

  • To develop a reliable method for assessing the risks and vulnerabilities of major EU health infrastructures to terrorist attacks;
  • To prepare specific security and threat assessment models and tools applicable to the Health sector using other EU projects;
  • To challenge these tools through application to the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan;
  • To disseminate guidelines designed to optimize the preparedness of hospitals’ healthcare infrastructures against terrorist attacks.
