Accelerating a shift from critical infrastructure resilience theory to practice
The Resilience Shift will host an open meeting that brings together the different industrial and academic programmes who are focused on improving the resilience of critical infrastructure. The aim of the meeting is to strengthen the networks between these respective industrial and academic programs. Collectively, this is key to creating systematic change to make the world safer at a global scale. We will look to understand the challenges and opportunities for accelerating the shift of academic research around resilience into practice, helping to build a global community of practitioners.
The Resilience Shift, supported by Arup and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, wants to inspire and empower a global community to make the world safer through resilient infrastructure. The programme provides knowledge and tools for those responsible for planning, financing, designing, delivering, operating and maintaining critical infrastructure systems.
This Focus Day event will provide an initial platform for participants to discuss and share ideas on critical infrastructure resilience, including risks, available tools and data, and existing resilience frameworks. We will achieve this through a brief presentation on the Resilience Shift and its objectives, and an overview of the session, followed by a World Café style session. Participants will likely be representatives from international organizations, leaders in public and private sectors and leading experts in academia.
We will use this session to help us understand the challenges, methods and tools, limitations and knowledge gaps to be addressed to improve resilience of critical infrastructure globally. As well as supporting the development of a global community of practice.
