Indestructible adaptability and resilience are crucial in this unpredictable world and uncertain time. Risk and resilience management is – just now – invaluable.  

Update

The festival will take place live on campus!

The past few years have shown that meeting and making contacts is the added value of the Risk & Resilience festival. Based on current insights, the festival will take place on the campus of the University of Twente. This means that the festival will not be streamed online.

For the time being, the current format is subject to change. If - within the corona measures that apply - it is not responsible or allowed to organize sessions on campus, the festival will be moved to another date.

One step ahead with big data

This year's Risk & Resilience Festival is themed: 'One step ahead with big data'. Mariëlle Stoelinga, Professor of Risk Management of High-Tech Systems, explains: "Data analysis, artificial intelligence and algorithms provide an incredible amount of possibilities, these techniques help enormously in identifying and dealing with risks. For example, we gain insight into human behaviour and. With this insight, we can better predict behaviour and ensure that the technology we design and the policies we create fit this behaviour. But how do we really use these techniques efficiently? How do we ensure that we can optimally manage risks and increase our resilience – and that of our organisation?"

Mariëlle: "We collect staggering amounts of data. Every day it has a sloppy 2 quintillion bytes – that's a 2 with 18 zeros behind it. That's almost impossible to imagine – especially when you consider that more data has been collected in 2019 than in all the years before. This is irrevocably the question of what we should do with all this data. How do we use the data responsibly and purposefully? And how do we deal with all ethical and moral issues, what about privacy and security?"
