4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering is based on a broad view of Resilience Engineering. We don’t only incorporate engineering, but look at the resilience of the full social-technical-environmental system. The DeSIRE-programme builds the capacity for the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering and funds its activities in the first five years.
Our goal is to build a thriving community on Resilience Engineering. To design 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 the government.
