Failures in Social Systems: Converging Biological, Behavioral, and Engineering Insights

FOCUS_Static_2.png

Understanding and explaining system failures are paramount in multiple disciplines such as engineering and the life sciences. Social considerations are often overlooked when analyzing failures, but should play a crucial role in the design, implementation, and in mitigating possible failure of systems.

Join us for a virtual forum on “Failures in Social Systems”—a first step toward shaping an integrated understanding of systems failures that is informed by the convergence of biological, behavioral, sociological, and engineering insights on March 7, 2024 from 10:30am-4:30pm ET.
