Resilience can be expressed as the capability of a system or organisation to respond to, or recover from, a crisis, a disruptive process, or any other unexpected event.
EUROCONTROL and CANSO are organising a joint Global Resilience Summit - a hybrid event at EUROCONTROL's Headquarters in Brussels.
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that resilience of the air traffic management (ATM) system is fundamental to ensuring that ATM can plan for, manage, and recover quickly from difficult conditions.
Together we will attempt to demystify what resilience means to ATM, discuss its important role in the successful delivery of safe and efficient ATM services and consider the lessons learned from the impact of COVID-19 on our industry.
Resilience is a ubiquitous term ….
From an organisational perspective
From a human perspective
Resilience can be defined as adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, or other significant sources of stress and how people bounce back from these experiences.
From a technological perspective
Resilience can be described as an organisation’s ability to maintain acceptable service levels through, and beyond, disruptions to its critical processes and systems.
What about ATM?
The CANSO/EUROCONTROL Global Resilience Summit will bring together key stakeholders in our community to clarify what resilience means to ATM and to discuss the important role resilience plays in the successful delivery of safe and efficient ATM services.
We will take a deeper look at how the interdependencies of human, technological and organisational resilience come together to position service providers for success. We will then apply those three elements to what we learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, and identify the key lessons for our community.
Over the course of the two days we will:
- examine the resilience of our personnel;
- investigate how to improve organisational resilience;
- explore how to design and build resilience and agility into the ATM network;
- explore the technologies that can support resilience;
- examine what COVID-19 taught us about resilience.

Key take-aways from the event
This global summit will be especially useful for the leaders of the aviation community whose organisation will benefit from a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, resilience in all its forms, and who are able to share their thoughts and experiences with others in a similar position.
