Rubberball – Enhancing Societal Resilience
At a glance
The importance of the concept “resilience” is growing in the
context of coping with crisis. The concept was originally developed
in the context of families asking how family members ac-quire
resistance to tensions/ crisis within families. Recently the
concept was transferred and adapted to societal crisis, such as
terrorism and catastrophes. The German-Israeli Rubberball research
project, which consists of crisis analysts/ reaction forces and
researchers, is located in this new line of research. An
interactive system of pundits supports exchange, collaboration and
learning processes among the involved crisis management
stakeholders in different countries.
For this research project, we provide our competences regarding conception and creation of virtual learning environments.
