"Science and Technology at DHS: Resiliency of our Physical and Social Infrastructure", Dr. Mitchell Erickson, Department of Homeland Security
Disasters affect us all. The challenge is to minimize the impact. Resilience has been defined as “Foster individual, community, and system robustness, adapt- ability, and capacity for rapid recovery.” The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) provides new technologies, materials, controls, models, and other tools that promote resilience. More impor- tant, science and technology can contribute to shaping our resiliency blueprint by instilling scientific rigor into the processes that will shape our future. This presen- tation will review resiliency approaches, emerging technologies, and capability gaps for resilient communities and institutions.
