The global aim of BERCOM is to provide a blueprint for a Pan-European resilient energy and communication infrastructures. This aim is synthesized by the following objectives:


  1. Analysis of reliability and security requirements of resilient ICT enabled distributed critical infrastructures


  1. Definition of a resilient system architecture


  1. Definition and analysis of robust power systems


  1. Definition and implementation of SCADA-type-over-LTE-services, which allow for secure group-based monitoring and control functionality


  1. Interdisciplinary hardening of energy and communication system components


  1. Integration and cross-sector system trial


  1. Validation and performance evaluation of hardened energy and 4G communication networks with special focus on their interdependency and the advantages of the systems compared to the current state of the Art based on additional socio-economic criteria


  1. Development of a European perspective
