Resilience programme first call for proposals

This call for scoping studies for consolidating knowledge on resilience between and within critical infrastructure sectors is aimed at supporting the agenda setting.


We appointed Arup to host a Joint Programme for Resilience Engineering (JPRE) which aims to improve resilience within and between critical infrastructure sectors globally. This is an opportunity to accelerate the resilience shift by promoting resilience engineering as a new approach that challenges old paradigms.  

This is the first call in a series of thematic calls for research proposals, aimed at supporting our agenda setting. The studies for this call will map the pathways from where engineering practice for resilience is today (baselining) and the key gaps. The studies will be drawn together to create a roadmap from current practice to where we want to be in 2021.
