The Future Resilient Systems (FRS) is the second research programme under the Singapore-ETH Centre, in partnership with Switzerland-based Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), and Singapore-based Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), and Singapore Management University (SMU).

We approach infrastructure from a socio-technical system perspective, integrating engineered, operational, and user subsystems, thereby building bridges between disciplines and patterns of thought.
Research topics at FRS are organised in three clusters:
