ENISA: Security Through a Public-Private Partnership

ENISA is organising a special event on public-private partnerships (PPPs) on 19th and 20th April in Rome.

The event will take place at the premises of Poste Italiane, Viale Europa 175, EUR area, Rome.

On the first day, there will be a meeting of the European Public Private Partnership for Resilience working group (EP3R), while day two features a workshop on national PPPs.

The Agency is particularly keen to have participation from those already involved in, or who would like to establish, PPPs. The workshop (20th April) will be of particular interest, though participants can choose to register for both days.

The workshop allows participants to:

  • Join information exchange session on public-private partnerships (PPPs)
  • Get an insight into cooperative models for effective PPPs
  • Hear about real-world examples of PPPs

Cooperation in the form of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) has evolved in many EU Member States, and the relevance of PPPs has been widely recognised by both policymakers and industry. The European Commission has proposed concrete policy and regulations for improving the security and resilience of public telecommunications.

These include the establishment of a European Public Private Partnership for Resilience (EP3R). This would engage with national PPPs to address Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) issues at a European level.


The 19th of April session will be dedicated to the EP3R Working Groups. This meeting follows on from the EP3R Workshop on 16th February in Brussels, where ENISA presented the state of play in each working group.

National PPPs

The workshop on 20th April will be dedicated to an Information Exchange Plenary Session about PPPs. This will provide a deeper insight into ENISA's findings on Cooperative Models for Effective Public Private Partnerships, and give real-world examples presented by experts involved in the management of European PPPs. This event is intended to support and help Member States in developing and adopting the PPP model.  


You may participate in both events, or choose the one you wish to attend, by checking the tick boxes on the online registration form.
