Prof Mair presented at the Global Grand Challenges Summit on Engineering Resilient Infrastructure.
New technologies provide better ways of predicting, preventing and responding to natural disasters and preparing ourselves for future extreme events, terror strikes, pandemics and climate shocks. But they also bring new dependencies and new threats. In this session, five senior speakers will discuss the latest engineering research and practice on disaster relief, flood prevention, cybersecurity, and energy security; they will also look at ways that concepts of resilience and risk can be better incorporated into the development of new infrastructures and technologies.
