“Eileen Murphy, Trinity College Dublin, presented the RESILENS project at the 2016 ESREL conference, held at the Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow on the 25th-29th September, 2016. As part of a DRS7 focused session, the five sister infrastructure resilience focused projects (RESILENS, DARWIN, RESOLUTE, SMR IMPROVER) presented the different approaches they are taking to operationalise resilience in relation to critical infrastructure. The session was organised around the dynamic format of a world cafe method, creating a space for open discussion, and opportunities to identify potential points of collaboration between the projects as they develop solutions in this challenging field of research. “
