8th REA Symposium on Resilience Engineering
24 June, 2019–27 June, 2019
The 8th Resilience Engineering Association’s Symposium on Resilience Engineering will be hosted at Linnaeus University. This year’s theme is Embracing resilience: Scaling up and Speeding up.
Jan Reier Huse from Lloyd’s Register Foundation is presenting, on behalf of the Resilience Shift, our findings to date across the programme with a paper entitled: ‘Resilience Shift program: objectives, execution and preliminary results’. This paper provides a summary of the Resilience Shift’s aims and objectives and explains the programme execution. Building resilience of critical infrastructure requires decision makers working in different industry sectors to understand ‘what’ can be done, ‘why’ it should be done, and ‘how’ to put it into practice.
Separately the Resilience Shift is hosting two sessions of a workshop, in partnership with The Schumacher Institute, at this year’s REA Symposium on the topic ‘Exploring Challenges in the Implementation of Resilience’. Led by Áine Ní Bhreasail, Co-Project Leader of our work on resilience tools and approaches, it will repeat the successful formula of workshops that brought tool users and developers together for the first time. This time it will bring together the researchers and developers who are bringing new ideas to the table, those pushing the boundaries of current practise or applying ideas between sectors.
This workshop addresses the challenges faced when designing and implementing tools for resilience. We will explore a methodology called Action Learning and put it into practice to solve, in real time, challenges workshop members face when implementing tools or methodologies to enable resilient performance. It is developed from the experience of running three workshops within critical infrastructure sectors, but applies to any sector and is relevant to all practitioners who are researching, developing, marketing or implementing a tool or methodology to work towards resilient performance of a system.
The workshops take place on 24 June 2019 at 09.00-12.00 AM or 13.00-16.30 PM

In order to ensure that the workshop achieves full benefit for attendees, we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in attending, please email [email protected] outlining the sector you represent and your role (as researcher, developer, marketeer or implementer of a tool or methodology, or if you have another interest).
Also, to gain maximum benefit from the workshop, we would ask you to give a little thought to an issue of current or recent practice which you would like to explore.
