About DeSIRE

DeSIRE (Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering) is an extensive interdisciplinary research and capacity building programme. The DeSIRE-programme funds 17 Tenure Trackers, 20 Postdocs and over 50 Resilience Fellows across 14 faculties at the 4TU's. As such 4TU.DeSIRE Programme serves as the founding core of the 4TU.RE Centre. It is part of the strategic research impulse ‘High Tech for a Sustainable Future’ of the four universities of technology in the Netherlands (Eindhoven, Delft, Twente and Wageningen) forming the backbone of 4TU.RE.


Our tenure trackers and postdocs

Our 17 Tenure Trackers and 20 Postdocs lay the foundation of the national research cluster on Resilience Engineering, the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering (4TU.RE). They create a head start on strengthening the interdisciplinary research agenda of this 4TU.RE Centre.
