The National Centre for Resilience is an independent Scottish Research Centre, hosted by the University of Glasgow and sponsored and funded by the Scottish Government. The centre takes an interdisciplinary, cross-sector, multi-agency approach to improving Scotland’s national resilience to natural hazards, including impacts to the environment, to people and their communities.
You are warmly invited to attend this cross-sector event at which academics, Scottish government policy makers and resilience practitioners will have the opportunity to better familiarise themselves with the work of the centre, with a view to identifying future opportunities for mutually beneficial collaborations and joint, interdisciplinary bids for external funding.
The event forms part of the NCR’s core work, bringing together specialist knowledge and skills from different areas of academia, policy and practice with the goal of helping the resilience sector to better support communities plan for, respond to and recover from extreme natural hazard events.
