Building Resilience into Risk Management

                               UoE_Logo     Loughborough_Logo      CranfieldUniversityLogo_20140211125715

BRIM is a network that brings together academics, engineers and policy makers to develop a shared, multi-disciplinary vision of how to build resilience into networked risk management for highly complex engineered systems.

This network is led by Professor Guangtao Fu at the University of Exeter, supported by Professor Roy Kalawsky at Loughborough University and Dr Monica Rivas Casado at Cranfield University.

We are supported by a research grant from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council as part of the Engineering Grand Challenge programme, and a number of industrial partners.

Network Themes

  •  Risk Analytic Paradigm
  •  Global systems science
  •  Networked risks and tipping points
  •  Design vs. operational resilience
  •  Metrics and intervention strategies

Through research stimulation in the above three areas, we expect to develop a double helix framework that integrates risk and resilience analysis in complex systems. This framework will be of sufficiently general to manage extreme events for complex systems, though the focus of this project is on critical infrastructure systems under extreme weather.

Network Aim

To nurture the development of novel methodologies and tools of building resilience into networked risk management of critical infrastructure systems for identifying tipping points of interdependencies and managing cascade effects of extreme events, in particular those related to extreme weather such as flooding and drought.

Network Activities

Conferences, Workshops and Seminars

We provide a range of mechanisms to help steer community efforts and develop new ideas.

For Researchers

Funding is available to facilitate pilot studies, hot topic workshops, staff exchanges and international collaborations.

How to get involved

We welcome members from academic staff, researchers, PhD students, engineers, policymakers, and those who are interested in contributing to the aims of this network. Please register by filling in our contact form.
