Global Resilience Research Network Summit | Baking Resilience In: Energizing Global Research for Novel Solutions, Applications, Technologies

Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany

Event Website

Novel approaches for responding to the growing array of shocks and protracted disruptions are urgently needed. Devising them requires close collaboration amongst researchers, policymakers and practitioners worldwide. The Global Resilience Research Network (GRRN), founded by the Global Resilience Institute at Northeastern University, provides a forum for collaboration on resilience-building efforts, and supports the sharing of resilience tools, applications, skills, and best practices to facilitate their rapid and widespread adoption worldwide.

The Inaugural Summit of the GRRN was held in March 2018 in Boston and brought together leading resilience experts from 20 major universities and research institutions from 14 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Powerful stories were shared by distinguished practitioners who have recently been on the front lines of managing some of the 21st century’s most catastrophic disasters.

Fraunhofer EMI, an institute of the Fraunhofer Society, Europe’s largest organization for applied research, will host the second summit of the Global Resilience Research Network (GRRN) on April 10–11, 2019.

Fraunhofer EMI is part of the Sustainability Center Freiburg, a multidisciplinary center of resilience research, which supports the summit. The event will build upon the successful launch of the GRRN and will bring together many of the world’s top academic, applied research, public policy and industry experts to exchange the latest ideas and solutions for informing and advancing resilience on multiple scales.
