Resilience of living systems – from fundamental concepts to interdisciplinary applications

Date: 24 May 2020 - 29 May 2020
Location: Ede

 During the course, the participants will learn about the basic concepts of resilience and their application, from an interdisciplinary perspective. Accordingly, we will address how resilience theory can be used to tackle fundamental and societal issues from a socio- economic and bio-physical perspective and will provide a critical reflection on the relevance, use, and applicability of the concept of resilience. 

We will focus particularly on:
1. The definition of resilience and how this varies between scientific disciplines, systems under investigation, the level of complexity and the spatio- and temporal scales of investigation
2. The identification of resilience related problems
3. The measurement and prediction of resilience
4. Management and governance of the systems’ resilience.
