About DeSIRE

The DeSIRE program and the 4TU RE scientists perform excellent research in the area of Resilience Engineering.
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

DeSIRE (Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering) is an extensive interdisciplinary research and capacity building program. It is part of the strategic research impulse ‘High Tech for a Sustainable Future’ of the four Dutch Technical Universities – Eindhoven, Delft, Twente and Wageningen – forming the backbone of 4TU RE. Our goal is to build a thriving community on Resilience Engineering. Designing solutions for complex social-technical-environmental systems requires linking different domains and disciplines. We have to make a connection between scientists, practitioners, engineers and policymakers; between universities, companies and government.

Tatiana Filatova, DeSIRE Program Leader:
“Continuing urbanization together with an increasing frequency and severity of climate-driven hazards are leading to a growing number of disasters. The presence of abrupt shocks and cascading events in coupled social-technical-environmental systems cannot be entirely eliminated. We must learn to live with them. To address these multi-facet problems, DeSIRE unites engineers with architects and modellers, and builds bridges across scientists from philosophy, governance, economics, business administration and environmental & agricultural sciences."

DeSIRE Mission

Over the duration of the program (2018-2022) DeSIRE aims to achieve the following:

  • Turning fragmented efforts into an (inter)national stronghold on RE;
  • Establishing a RE Academy to convert knowledge into innovation and social impact;
  • Create a foundation for a flourishing and world-leading Resilience Engineering research program.

DeSIRE focusses on three challenges within the domain of Resilience Engineering:

  1. Resilience Thinking and Design
  2. Measuring, Quantification and Modelling Resilience
  3. Resilience Coordination and Governance 

The DeSIRE program is aligned with:
