4TU DeSIRE conference on Resilience Engineering
Building Connections for Resilience Engineering Solutions

June 6 & 7, 2019
Campus of the University of Twente, Enschede

On behalf of the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering and the Strategic Research Programme DeSIRE (Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering), we would like to invite you to the first 4TU DeSIRE-conference on Resilience Engineering. The aim of this national conference is to provide a forum for scientists and practitioners to connect, share experiences and raise challenges on all aspects related to Resilience Engineering of social-technological-ecological systems. Together, we want to build a resilience engineering community and start or further strengthen collaborations.

Registration is now open!

Please note: the online registration closes on Monday June, 3. On-site registration is still possible. The conference fees are on the registration page.

Conference Theme – Building connections

Our societies face many grand challenges, including provision of clean and reliable energy, design of climate proof cities and new forms of mobility. Given the increasing number and severity of shocks and stresses, engineering resilience in these systems is an absolute necessity in the modern interconnected world. Designing solutions for such complex social-technological-ecological systems requires linking different domains and disciplines. Therefore, our first conference is dedicated to building connections within the field of Resilience Engineering: across different domains and between academia, practice and policy-making.

Join us!

Looking forward to meet you on June 6 & 7, 2019 in Twente!

Kind regards,

Prof. dr. Tatiana Filatova, Programme Leader DeSIRE
Dr. Tina Comes, Co-Scientific Director 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering
Dr. Marjolein Dohmen-Janssen, Managing Director 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering
