About this event

How to Empower Local Communities by Benchmarking Resilience​

Engineers play an important role in dealing with extreme scenarios and in efficiently collaborating with all relevant stakeholders to ensure resilience of strategic infrastructure and cities as a whole.

At this popular event, Eelco H. Dykstra MD, Executive Chairman of Daily Impact Emergency Management (DIEM) will provide attendees with a unique and region-specific perspective on emergency management.

To create a sense of co-ownership with the audience, this creative lecture will consist of four interactive parts:

1. Common Frame of Reference
The presentation starts with the creation of a ‘Common Frame of Reference’ covering issues such as semantics and terminology, formulas, basic principles of risk/crisis communication and a brief forecasting exercise.

2. Nine Universal Roadblocks (NUR) Model
A brief overview of the ‘Nine Universal Roadblocks’ model will be given. These are universal problems where acceptable solutions have not yet been found and the audience will be asked to prioritise these roadblocks.

3. Reality-fiction Scenario
The audience will be immersed in a “what if…?” scenario and be given an opportunity to offer conclusions and recommendations.

4. Questions and Answers
The lecture will finish with a Q&A session, allowing the audience to discuss any of the points that have been raised.

Light refreshments will be provided.

2 PDU's will be awarded to all Engineers who will attend.
