Resilience2050. Workshop 24 Nov 2014

The workshop on Resilience opened the debate around the state-of-art in the context of resilience in the Air Transport System and its operations. Both the new discoveries made in the field by the FP7 project consortium, together with inputs from other teams researching in the field were welcome in this event attached to the SIDs in Madrid. The icing on the cake was asocial-networking event to discover historical Madrid city-centre, and its “resilience” to time, wars and many other disturbances.
