4TU DeSIRE conference on Resilience Engineering
6 June, 2019–7 June, 2019
Dr. Juliet Mian, Technical Director at the Resilience Shift, will be giving a keynote address at the DeSIRE conference on resilience engineering. This year’s theme is on Building Connections for Resilience Engineering Solutions.
4TU.Resilience Engineering is a partnership of four universities of technology (TU Delft, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente and University of Wageningen) in the Netherlands who are jointly committed to strengthening and pooling technical knowledge.
The 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering and the Strategic Research Programme DeSIRE (Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering), are hosting the first 4TU DeSIRE-conference on Resilience Engineering. The aim of this national conference is to provide a forum for scientists and practitioners to connect, share experiences and raise challenges on all aspects related to Resilience Engineering of social-technological-ecological systems. Together, we want to build a resilience engineering community and start or further strengthen collaborations.
Conference Theme – Building connections
Our societies face many grand challenges, including provision of clean and reliable energy, design of climate proof cities and new forms of mobility. Given the increasing number and severity of shocks and stresses, engineering resilience in these systems is an absolute necessity in the modern interconnected world. Designing solutions for such complex social-technological-ecological systems requires linking different domains and disciplines. Therefore, our first conference is dedicated to building connections within the field of Resilience Engineering: across different domains and between academia, practice and policy-making.
