4th Edition: July 20 - 24, 2020
Call for Applications: March 3, 2020 - May 15, 2020 via VIU website
Due to the ongoing and evolving COVID-19 emergency in Italy and worldwide, VIU will communicate to the participants on June 20, 2020 whether this Summer School is confirmed.
The Scientific Coordinators have decided that the Summer School is suitable for a virtual edition. Should it be necessary to organise this program as a virtual Summer School, the participants will pay a reduced fee.
In the event that the situation in Italy improves, virtual access will be offered to participants whose home country or home institution have issued travel advisories preventing travel to Italy.
In its fourth edition, the Summer School led by the University of Rome Tor Vergata offers a scientific approach to prioritize risk and a pragmatic framework to develop resilience solutions.
Academics and professionals come together to offer this course because resilience is a key feature, whether we work at city, business or sector scale.
The course consists of a mix of theoretical knowledge, case studies/projects and hands-on exercises. The beautiful city of Venice is an ideal place that participants can use to identify a critical infrastructure, assess its risk and develop resilience strategies. This school will discuss the concept of CI and aims to provide the participants with (i) a clear understanding of what resilience means for their work, (ii) methods to assess risk and priorities, and with (iii) an overview of tools and solutions from recent applications.
