Our ambition

4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering brings the expertise of different scientists and engineers together to anticipate the grand challenges societies will be facing.
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

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.

Poverty and gender equality are central to increasing resilience in the global south 
‘Increasing resilience is often a bigger necessity in the global South than it is in the North. My plea to 4TU RE is to seriously address issues around poverty and gender inequality that weaken many societies, as fundamental components of resilience building. A critical connection between CARE and 4TU RE could be by working jointly in Vietnam. CARE has a long term presence in Vietnam and among other issues is working to integrate climate change adaptation across our poverty fighting efforts in Vietnam. For example, CARE has worked for a long time with coastal communities in Thanh Hoa province to maintain and grow mangrove forests, thereby protecting these communities from storm surges and providing an alternative income source for communities living in the area. Projects like these could benefit from your expertise and offer you exciting research and learning opportunities.’
