Making tomorrow’s infrastructure sustainable and resilient requires investing in high calibre research and innovation today. Increasingly complex infrastructure systems of the 21st century require capabilities that can combine knowledge from multiple disciplines, harness the promise of emerging technologies, and bring together insights from the local level. The CDRI Fellowship Programme is designed to develop a global pool of practitioners who represent such capabilities.

The aim of the CDRI Fellowship Programme is to promote research and innovation on disaster resilient infrastructure (DRI). It does this by supporting practitioners, academicians, and community leaders, who are working in related fields. The Fellows will have an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with their peers from across the world.

The Fellowship provides financial aid to support a search for solutions to real-world problems related to DRI. Promising solutions emerging from the Programme will be shared widely and may be taken up for implementation in multiple contexts. Upon successful completion, the Fellows will join the global network of CDRI alumni and participate in alumni events.
