This paper discusses the European Research Agenda for Critical In formation Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) which has been developed by the EU IST CI2RCO project. The Agenda identifies research challenges and analyses existing R&D gaps in CIIP. It integrates the insights and ideas of a broad cross-section of Critical Infrastructure stakeholders such as owners and operators, control system experts, law enforcement agencies, and government leaders re sponsible for research funding.
