Overview

The Community Resilience Center of Excellence would focus on tools to support community disaster resilience. The center would work on developing integrated, systems-based computational models to assess community infrastructure resilience and guide community-level resilience investment decisions. The proposed center also would develop a data management infrastructure, as well as tools and best practices to improve the collection of disaster and resilience data. For more information on NIST’s ongoing programs on disaster resilience, see the Community Disaster Resilience for Buildings and Infrastructure Lifelines program.

The NIST Centers of Excellence will provide an interdisciplinary environment where researchers from NIST, academia and industry will collaborate on emerging areas of basic and applied research and innovations in measurement science. These centers are meant to:
