In this second edition, we bring together academics and professional experts to discuss an emerging topic with a pragmatic and scientific approach. The program is primarily designed for working professionals and graduate students with an interest in engineering, economics, governance and/or risk management. But the concepts and tools apply to all fields.
The School explains how critical infrastructure works and fails; its cascading impact from local to global, and the strategies to use to build a resilient society. The course will discuss the concept of CI and the EU framework, and present a series of tools and solutions for resilience. The participants will gain (i) a clear understanding of the key concepts, (ii) a methodology to apply it to their specific field/scale, and (iii) an overview of specific tools and solutions from recent applications. The course consists of a mix of theoretical knowledge, case studies/projects and hands-on exercises. The beautiful city of Venice is an ideal setting that participants can use to identify critical infrastructure, assess its risk, and develop resilience strategies.
The call for application is now open, until March 29, 2018. For more information, please visit:
