Grants available to develop resilience primers for industry

Initial deadline for expressions of interest 27 August 2018.

How can we shift the needle on resilience practice so that all organisations embed it into their decision-making? We believe that key incentives or other levers exist for all industries and that we must articulate the value that resilience can bring.

We are seeking expressions of interest from potential grantees to develop practical, industry-specific primers that will identify:

  • The current best practices by leading organisations (within the selected industry) that embed resilience into their decision-making, and the incentives/levers that drive them.
  • The incentives/levers that are currently available for driving resilience, but not capitalized upon due to lack of awareness of their existence.
  • How to scale and augment the current menu of incentives/levers.

These primers are envisioned to be industry-specific, booklet-style, guidance documents that capture best practice as to how and when resilience is valued within a
given industry, highlighting key decision points when resilience can be enhanced.

We want to engage directly with industry stakeholders and with those responsible for incentivizing resilience for critical infrastructure. Interested collaborators should therefore propose an industry where they have existing contacts, both with end-users of the primers and with organizations that incentivize resilience.

The proposed critical infrastructure system or associated industry should be one that provides essential services to society, where a lack of resilience could have a direct impact on the safety and well-being of society.

The Resilience Shift is a global initiative, we want to develop a common understanding across infrastructure systems globally, and we’d be interested to hear from applicants working in any part of the world. To find out more, see the detailed Scope for Grantees and the Expression of Interest form where you can apply to work with us.

    CORA, the Confidential Operational Research & Analysis programme is working with leaders in health- and social-care to bring both resolution in cases of human- & organisational-factors events, and greater understanding of the impacts of those events on a wide scale through analysis. We would be interested in discussing opportunities with any parties interested in discovering a way to improve resilience through adopting methodologies with a decades-long history of success in aviation, maritime, and surface transport, and public-sector safety.
