The Covid-19 pandemic is the most recent shock that affected our societies, and there are still significant uncertainties remaining for 2020 and 2021. Decision-making is the single most effective factor conditioning a successful recovery and building resilience for the crises to come.

In its fourth edition, the Summer School led by the University of Rome Tor Vergata offers pragmatic framework and a tactical decision-making tool for resilience. The tool is actively used by professionals, public authorities and academicians. The course has a scientific approach combined with a hands-on interactive format designed for a multi-disciplinary audience.

Academics and professionals come together to offer this course because resilience is a key feature, whether we work at city, business or sector scale.

Due to the pandemic, the course will be taught online this year and it will span over 3 weeks.
