To create international impact, the DeSIRE programme features a Fellowship Programme. This programme enables 4TU researchers with an interest in resilience of social-environmental-technical systems to invite and cooperate with junior and senior researchers from around the world. Calls for applications are launched on a regular basis (once or twice a year). Our ambition is to have a group of 100 Resilience fellows (including a couple of appointed ambassadors) by the end of 2022. These fellows and ambassadors are invited for our events and play a key role in advancing and spreading our new knowledge, approaches, tools and ideas about resilience engineering.
The COVID-19 situation did not stop our researchers from considering international cooperation. In the last call for applications – which is now closed – we again received a nice set of eligible applications. These applications come from researchers and practitioners around the world. Still we would like to launch another call later this year. So please keep an eye on our newsletter and website, and start thinking about international contacts whom you would like to invite/cooperate with to jointly develop proposals, publications, projects and the like.
