Understand the growing complexity and interdependence of modern systems

In establishing the interdisciplinary Risk Center by mid 2011 ETH Zurich places itself among the leading proponents of understanding the growing complexity and interdependence of our social and engineered systems, and discovering and modeling related behavioral phenomena. In this spirit the Risk Center will promote system or even "system-of-systems" thinking and theory and will build an integrated view of risk landscapes. It also serves as an interface between academia, industry, and civil (or governmental) authorities. Its research output should help society and industry to better manage risk portfolios and to design novel solutions for collaborative risk reduction, and resilience-enhancing schemes.
