Launch Event

The Encore Launch Event is the official start of the ENCORE ambitious project. It will gather some of the brightest academics and industry representatives with an interest in engineering complex systems and their resilience. The network will state its objective and start pursuing them straightaway. 

Amongst others, Stuart Jobbins will take the podium to give an industry view of resilience in CES. He kindly provided us with a taster piece about resilience in complex engineering systems. Good food for thoughts in preparation to the event, have a read here!
