SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems have a prominent role in the management of critical infrastructures. They are used in the monitoring and control of equipment in several different industries, such as the Energy sector. In this project of exchange between researchers of the FCUL (Portugal) and the PUPCR/Inmetro (Brasil) the objective is to embrace the following challenge: to collaborate in the design and development of advanced security mechanisms to be integrated in a next‐generation SCADA system, with the goal of assuring correct behaviour in spite of the presence of a diverse range of faults, both of accidental and/or malicious nature. The teams involved present a complementary set of skills and experience in building this type of solutions, and therefore this collaboration may yield important scientific achievements with practical industrial impact. On the other hand, the participation of young researchers will help foster new projects of advanced learning.
