CRNA focuses on the robustness and security of ICT infrastructures, by which we mean that applications should continue to function at the best possible level of quality and security, even in the presence of technical failures, unplanned excessive load, design and implementation flaws in specific components, human error and malicious intent. CRNA is currently hosting several European and national projects and is staffed with 22 senior and junior researchers together with engineers and administrators.
