NETLIPSE is the NETwork for the dissemination of knowledge on the management and organisation of Large Infrastructure ProjectS in Europe. The NETLIPSE network consists of various partner organisations involved in the delivery of large infrastructure projects, who want to develop and exchange knowledge and experiences in managing and organising these projects. Clients, project directors and researchers have become and can become involved in the network in many ways, varying from representing a project that was researched in the first NETLIPSE phase (2006-2008) to organisations that have supported NETLIPSE in other ways, such as hosting meetings, initiating and participating in new research, supporting project assessments (see IPAT) etc. Among others, partners represent:
- Ministries of Transport
- Departments for Infrastructure, Transport, Mobility and/or public works
- Local government organisations
- Project Delivery Organisations
- University and other research institutes.
100 Resilient Cities
100 Resilient Cities—Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) is dedicated to helping cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century. 100RC supports the adoption and incorporation of a view of resilience that includes not just the shocks—earthquakes, fires, floods, etc.—but also the stresses that weaken the fabric of a city on a day to day or cyclical basis. Examples of these stresses include high unemployment; an overtaxed or inefficient public transportation system; endemic violence; or chronic food and water shortages. By addressing both the shocks and the stresses, a city becomes more able to respond to adverse events, and is overall better able to deliver basic functions in both good times and bad, to all populations. Cities in the 100RC network are provided with the resources necessary to develop a roadmap to resilience.
