Resilience Engineering

The objective of this Technical Committee is to promote and facilitate theoretical, empirical and practical research and innovations in the area of resilience engineering. 
Resilience is gaining popularity, particularly with the increase of the possibility of situations in which systems, people and organizations have to interact, decide and act under high uncertainty, influenced by tempo of operations and socio-economic pressures. 
Resilience Engineering is a research and practice area that covers theories, methods and practices to enable systems and organizations successful adjustment prior, during and after disturbances, changes and opportunities. Thus, enable the adaptive ability of systems and organizations in order to function effectively and safely.
Resilience engineering draws from a large number of foundation disciplines and closely related professional field. Different topics should be studied for actively contributing to understand and improve system´s resilience. From models and methods for studying systems routines, practices, flexibility improvisations and adjustments related capacities of adaptation to the development of operational methods and tools for supporting resilience development, performance assessment or change management. It also addresses design, governance and management of systems and organizations in a interdependent network. Moreover, interactions and cross-fertilisation between resilience engineering, other forms of resilience and other thematic of safety and reliability management need to be addressed.  
Activities of the Committee will be the organization of creative sessions, innovation labs, technical sessions and roundtables at ESREL Conferences Committee.
