A changing climate and growing population in a world that is more and more interconnected, make societies vulnerable to incidents, disasters and prolonged stress. 4TU Resilience Engineering combines craft, knowledge and expertise from scientists and engineers in different fields to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow in building resilient societies.

RESILIENCE ENGINEERING 
How can a city cope with prolonged heat stress or a terrorist attack? How does farmland bounce back after a flood? And how can we build resilient societies where the impact of incidents, disasters and prolonged stress can be reduced or absorbed?

By looking at the entire system of human, natural and technical factors, the 4TU Resilience Engineering Centre aims to gain analytic understanding of resilience in complex, interconnected systems. Furthermore, the centre works on developing technological, sociological and design solutions to create resilient systems.
 
MISSION
The purpose of the 4TU RE Centre is to bring about and facilitate a Resilience Engineering movement. The 4TU RE Centre is a place where experts from different fields meet, exchange knowledge and ideas, learn together and from each other. By bringing scientist from the four technical universities in the Netherlands together, the centre aims at building the capacity to be a leading international knowledge centre.

4TU RE deliberately builds connections with societal institutions outside of academia. Working together with people in the field warrants the practical relevance of the research programmes and helps disseminate the insights gained.

ORGANISATION
4TU RE is a virtual centre, connecting resilience experts from the four technical universities in the Netherlands.

Dr. ir. Marjolein Dohmen-Janssen (UT) is managing director.

A steering group determines the scientific course of the centre. The steering group consists of;
Prof. dr. ir. David Smeulders (TU / e), chairman, scientific director 4TU-RE
Dr. Tina Comes (DUT), co-scientific director 4TU-RE
Prof. dr. ir. Bas Kemp (WUR)
Prof. dr. ir. Bas Jonkman (DUT)
Prof. dr. Tatiana Filatova (UT)

A think tank of scientific experts helps coordinate and set up the research activities. The think tank consists of;
Dr. ir. Joanne Vinke-De Kruijf (UT)
Dr. Irna van der Molen (UT)
Dr. Stella Kapodistria (TU / e)
Dr. Pascale le Blanc (TU / e)
Dr. Lan Ge (WUR)
Krijn Poppe M. Sc. (WUR)
