International Centre of Excellence on Critical Infrastructures and Strategic Planning

21. Juli 2015;

IRDR approved the International Centre of Excellence on Critical Infrastructures and Strategic Planning (ICoE-CISP)

At the 13th meeting of the IRDR held in Qingdao, China, the Science Committee approved the proposal from the Institute of Spatial and Regional Planning (IREUS) to establish an IRDR International Centre of Excellence (ICoE). This new ICoE will support integrated research on the resilience of critical infrastructures, their management and the increasing dependency of societies on the functioning of critical ifrastructures, thus the name of the ICoE, Critical Infrastructure and Strategic Planning (CISP).

The Institute of Spatial Planning (IREUS) led by Prof. Jörn Birkmann will be operating as a network hub between all the network partners, namely the United Nations University - Institute for Environment and Human Security in Bonn; The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT); the University of Potsdam - Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology (CEDIM); the University of Stuttgart - Department of Technical and Environmental Sociology.
