4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering (4TU RE) is the knowledge centre in Resilience Engineering of the four universities of technology in the Netherlands (Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente and Wageningen University and Research). The knowledge centre wants to develop, apply and disseminate knowledge, methods and tools for making societies more resilient. Within this area 4TU RE focuses on engineering solutions (technical solutions and system designs) in interaction with social-ecological systems.

Our mission is: bring scientist and engineers from different research areas together to develop, apply and disseminate knowledge, methods and tools for making the complex technological systems in societies more resilient.

4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering wants to develop, apply and disseminate knowledge, methods and tools on Resilience Engineering for a wide range of application areas with the aim to:

  • Develop resilience thinking and resilient system design;
  • Measure, quantify and model resilience;
  • Improve coordination and governance of resilient technological systems.

Technological and social developments are advancing at a rapid pace. We are more and more highly interconnected through networks. And at the same time we are facing transitions like climate change, migration and growth of the world population. Societies have to deal with changes, incidents, disasters and stress situations.

How do we deal with this? How can a city for example cope with prolonged heat stress? Or with a terrorist attack? How does farmland bounds back better after a flood?

These developments make our social, technological and environmental systems vulnerable. It creates extensive issues that we cannot solve in a monodisciplinary way. Collaboration between different research areas is therefore essential and necessary.

4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering brings the expertise of different scientists and engineers together to anticipate the grand challenges societies will be facing. The focus is on engineering, either finding technical solutions and system designs, in interaction wih social-ecological systems.

The ambition of 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering is:

  • Become an international leading knowledge centre in Resilience Engineering;
  • Create and facilitate a Resilience Engineering movement.
    In short, bring about and facilitate a movement in which we actively work towards creating more resilient complex technological systems within societies. 4TU RE wants to create awareness around this subject, make resilience an important basic principle for system design and an essential starting point for the governance of these systems.
