Today’s society presents challenging social and natural risks that cannot be addressed through singular approaches. To effectively understand these risks, offer relevant policy solutions, and increase our resilience, we must develop innovative approaches that cross disciplinary boundaries. In response to these challenges, the National Institute for Risk and Resilience facilitates teaching, research, and outreach activities across academic disciplines, with practitioners, private partners and students to create interdisciplinary learning and collaborations, resulting in deeper understanding of and offering better solutions to these complex challenges.
