July 18-22, 2022 | 6th Edition
Call for applications: December 1, 2021 – March 24, 2022 via the VIU website
The Covid-19 pandemic is the most recent shock that has affected our societies, and there are still significant uncertainties remaining for 2022. Decision-making is the single most effective factor in conditioning a successful recovery and building resilience for the crises to come.
In this 6th edition, the Summer School led by the University of Rome Tor Vergata offers a pragmatic framework and shares tactical tools used by governments and businesses. The framework reflects both national laws and the International Standard Organization guidelines and consists of: Life Safety, Business Continuity, and Economic Recovery.
Academics and professionals come together to offer this course because resilience is a key feature, whether we work at the city, business or sector scale.
The course consists of a mix of theoretical knowledge, case studies/projects and hands-on exercises. This course will discuss the concept of CI and aims to provide the participants with (i) a clear understanding of the framework and tactical tools, (ii) a series of existing decision-making tools used by public entities, businesses and international organizations, and (iii) peer learning from participant’s experiences.
