Learn expert insights from members of our Energy, Digital, Design and Manufacturing panels, covering whether these sectors are well-equipped for dealing with interruptions and how they could improve resilience.
We also discuss why understanding the wider interdependencies and interconnectedness of multiple sectors that are critical to life lies at the heart of more effective resilience planning.
What is the IET’s take on resilience? Our Resilience Working Group have provided recommendations aimed at commending additional measures and priorities and championing the vital role engineers and engineering will play in delivering them:
- To Government, industry and local communities - embedding a whole system approach to resilience and resilience planning.
- To Government and the research community - setting ambitious targets for research to assist resilience and resilience planning.
- To the education and engineering communities - making resilience an integral part of the training engineers receive.
Resilience is a huge and complex topic we cannot possibly cover in just a few pages.
However, we hope this thought piece will help to stimulate debate around the role that engineers can play in engineering a more resilient world for our increasingly complex and technology-dependent society.
