2019 Summit Highlights

The GRRN Mission

The mission of the Global Resilience Research Network (GRRN) is to inform and advance resilience by providing a global platform for collaborative research. This encompasses projects, initiatives and programs addressing public and private sector needs and requirements. Interdisciplinary research insights, innovations and educational programs are shared among network partners and made available to the global community.


Founded by the Global Resilience Institute (GRI) at Northeastern University in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Ernst-Mach-Institut (EMI), the GRRN is a membership network of leading universities, institutes, non-profit organizations, and companies.

About the GRRN Summit

The Inaugural 2018 GRRN Summit, held in Boston, USA brought together leading resilience experts from 20 major universities and research institutions from 14 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Powerful stories were shared by distinguished practitioners who have recently been on the front lines of managing some of the 21st century’s most catastrophic disasters.

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) will host the third summit of the Global Resilience Research Network in November 2020.
