MRS logo v2Invited university, governmental and private sector officials will gather this fall to discuss the intersection of maritime and coastal resilience.

The 7th Maritime Risk Symposium (MRS 2016) will be held on Nov. 14-15 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, hosted by the Department of Homeland Security’s Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence.

The event brings together leading researchers and practitioners across multiple homeland security sectors to build networks, identify gaps in current capabilities and generate ideas for future research. The event will focus on “Integrating Maritime and Coastal Resilience.”

MRS 2016 will encourage practitioners to identify pressing needs in their fields and inspire researchers to think beyond their current focus. Working together, organizers seek to define a research horizon that will enhance maritime and coastal resilience to disturbances that are both natural and man-made.
