29 Apr UniGenova | Lecture Series: Resilience Assessment of Complex Systems as a Multidisciplinary Approach to Prevention and Disaster Management
The aim of the course is to analyze the resilience concept from different perspectives involving various research areas and interests of applications of the multidisciplinary PhD program in “Security, Risk and Vulnerability”.
The course comprises:
- A theoretical part aimed to introduce the basic formulations, definitions, indicators and dimensions that typically characterize a “resilience study”.
- Thematic seminars focusing on examples of resilience studies from various perspectives (engineering, social, managerial, law, cyber-security) and related to different hazardous events (seismic action, extreme meteorological events, cyber-attacks, …).
The seminars will also illustrate the types of actions that may be carried out to improve the resilience of a system in various phases as:
- before the disastrous event, that is in the ordinary period in which preparedness interventions should be made in order to reduce the vulnerabilities and increase the community inclusion in the preparation process;
- during the disastrous event, that is a hot period just after the occurrence of a catastrophic event, which may last for few days or even months, depending on the type of event and its intensity;
- after the disastrous event, that is the period needed to recover a new ordinary period. The recovery/reconstruction period may be faster and more effective through the adoption of appropriate solutions and the direct involvement of the community and societal stakeholders.
The course is scheduled via the MS Teams platform.
