The Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute (CIRI), a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) center of excellence led by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, announced a new request for proposals (RFP) for interdisciplinary research, technology development, education and workforce development relevant to the resilience and security of the nation’s critical infrastructure.

CIRI seeks practical outcomes related to the themes of resilience insurance, macro and micro industrial supply chain, and infrastructure dependencies and interdependencies that can serve the needs of industry and government.

CIRI is seeking proposals for projects that will improve the nation’s ability to:
• Understand vulnerabilities and risks of critical infrastructure
• Quantitatively assess risks and resilience measures
• Mitigate risks and improve resilience
• Establish the business case for resiliency
• Deploy resiliency measures

Interested applicants should review the National Infrastructure Protection Plan 2013 (NIPP 2013) and Critical Infrastructure Security and Protection R&D Plan (CISR R&D November 2015) before responding to the RFP. Details and supporting documents of the RFP are posted at http://ciri.illinois.edu/rfp-2016. Applications are due Oct. 24.

A webinar will be held Sept. 23, and more information is here.
