Risk and Resilience of Complex Systems (RRCS), Industrial Chair, 2020 - 2024


About the Chair

The industrial Chair RRCS is supported by three industrial partners: Électricité de France (EDF)Orange, and the Société nationale des chemins de fer français (SNCF). It inherited the Chair on System Science and Energy Challenge, lasting two seasons (2009 - 2019). The scientific research includes three main axes:

  • Modelling of systems of systems and their interdependences for risk management and resilience between several operators
  • Modelling and optimization of maintenance tasks to reduce their impact on service continuity (internally and between operators)
  • Common models and methods platform

The operational objectives of the Chair include:

  • Experience sharing among the Chair members and the researchers from the three partners
  • In-depth explorative research within the framework of PhD theses and master internships
  • Applications & role-play within the framework of student projects
  • Integrating partner use cases into the teaching for Ingénieur and Master students
  • Training on risk and resilience issues of complex industrial systems
  • Animation of the community and ecosystems
