The Inaugural 2018 GRRN Summit in Boston, USA brought together leading resilience experts from 20 major universities and research institutions from 14 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Powerful stories were shared by distinguished practitioners who have recently been on the front lines of managing some of the 21st century’s most catastrophic disasters.

Fraunhofer EMI, an institute of the Fraunhofer Society, Europe’s largest organization for applied research, will host the second summit of the Global Resilience Research Network (GRRN) on April 9–11, 2019. Fraunhofer EMI is part of the Sustainability Center Freiburg, a multidisciplinary center of resilience research, which supports the summit. The event will build upon the successful launch of the GRRN at Northeastern University in Boston in March 2018. It will bring together many of the world’s top academic, applied research, public policy and industry experts to exchange the latest ideas and solutions for informing and advancing resilience on multiple scales.
