We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in close collaboration with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, US Department of Commerce) and Colorado State University is organising the 2nd International Workshop on Modelling of Physical, Economic and Social Systems for Resilience Assessment on 14-16 of December 2017.
The workshop aims to explore how high-level strategic needs and current scientific advances on modelling of physical, economic and social systems are linked in order to support resilience assessment in various dimensions.
The workshop covers:

The 1st International Workshop on Modelling of Physical, Economic and Social Systems for Resilience Assessment took place in Washington, DC on 19-21 of October 2016, and was organised by NIST and Colorado State University.
Interest in resilience has been rising rapidly during the last twenty years, both among policy makers and academia, as a response to increasing concern about the potential effect of shocks to individuals, civil infrastructure, regions, countries and social, economic and political institutions. The objective of the workshop is to bring together the scientific community and policy makers towards developing better policies and practices incorporating the element of resilience in various fields.
To this end, the JRC will build on the experience acquired during the JRC-EPSC annual conference "Building a Resilient Europe in a Globalised World" which took place in September 2015. This workshop was aimed at identifying strategic needs and providing an outlook of future actions policy making.
