Our project clearly helps to address the issues raised by our partners, but also the society at large might benefit. Our findings can be extended to other disruptive events, such as riots, natural disruptions, large accidents, where a variety stakeholders with different backgrounds and information, under time pressure have to make decisions. This also links to broader EU projects in relation to energy resilience, information security and disaster risk reduction as a resilient supply chain is a crucial component for system rebound after disruptive events in any of these areas. The University of Groningen (via NOHA) and TNO already participate in these networks.
A wider research community (e.g. related to Log4Green, and the International Supply Chain Risk Management Network) is working in this field. Some of the involved researchers have shown interest in this project or were already involved in it. They will be working with us on further dissemination, joint publications, and research and business seminars (like the organized 1st International EurOMA Sustainable Operations and Supply Chains Forum, March 24-25, Groningen, initiated and co-chaired by Dirk Pieter van Donk). Together, we plan to build a consortium with the goal to apply for European grants.
