The secretary of the Resilience Engineering Association, Pedro Ferreira, and the presidents of the Portuguese and Brazilian Ergonomics associations, Teresa Cotrim and Lucy Mara Baú respectively, will open the 1st Luso-Brazilian Seminar on Resilience Engineering this Thursday. The initiative took place on 28 September, online, and featured a dozen guest speakers.
