The German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) is one of three new partners in the project fit4sec. In its function as leading association of two sectors that include a large number of critical infrastructure operators, it has taken on the role to represent the end-user group critical infrastructure operators within fit4sec. The BDEW is looking to support operators in the task to identify their research needs and to develop successful research projects. Hence a first networking meeting took place on Thursday, 16th of November 2017 at the BDEW in Berlin.
The aim of the meeting was to inform participants about the new calls in the work program „secure societies“ within Horizon 2020 for the period from 2018 till 2020 and to give participants the opportunity to exchange project interests and ideas.
