How do you measure resilience? The Resilience Shift talks to resilience pioneer, Dr Murali Chandrashekaran, about why people do the things they do, and the need for a human-centred approach to resilience – along with solid data to support it.
Professor Paul Jowitt shares his reflections on what makes an engineer today, why ‘lessons learned’ about failure don’t seem to be, and how systems thinking is fundamental to resilience.
How can the disruption resulting from Covid-19 teach us to be more resilient to future crises and uncertainties? We share insights from the Engineering a Safer Future: Learning from crisis series of roundtables in partnership with Lloyd’s Register Foundation.
Why not start by exploring our list of resilience-related infrastructure education specialisations, departments and courses. For a relatively new academic subject, the choices are extensive.
Course Director of Cambridge’s Construction Engineering Masters, Dr Kristen MacAskill, tells us what’s on her mind, lessons learned from the resilience round-tables, and the challenges for resilience as a discipline.
What are the key drivers of a change in practice to more resilient infrastructure? This question has been front of mind during May.
For those interested in studying infrastructure-related resilience, there are opportunities world-wide to undertake undergraduate and postgraduate education.
April was another busy month for the Resilience Shift. Find out more about our key activities and engagements including the start of our Incentivising Resilience project based in San Francisco.
