With the ever-increasing complexity and interdependence of engineering systems come more threats, hazards and a growing risk of failure cascades. From the telecommunication blackout in Rome to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, from Toyota’s safety issues to the northeastern US blackout, reliability re-emerges as key.
Aware of the potentially huge socio-economic consequences of such risks, and with the support of the AXA Research Fund and other partners, ETH Zurich, the internationally renowned engineering school, created this Chair in Risk and Reliability Engineering, a core area of research within the ETH Risk Center.
This newly formed Center is part of ETH Zurich’s risk initiative, which aims to establish a world-leading nucleus for integrative risk management.
