Providing administrative support to ENCORE Network+ and faculty-wide projects.
ENCORE Network+ addresses the Grand Challenge area of Risk and Resilience in Complex Engineered Systems (CES).
CES examples include complex products consisting of many interacting components such as gas turbine engines and complex networks such as the UK’s digital, energy and transport networks.
We lack a coherent understanding of what unifies the complexity of entities such as jet engines, cities and our national infrastructure, and of what tools we need necessary to manage and build CES that exhibit resilience or quantify the risks inherent in such systems.
