Abstract

This paper is based on findings of an ERASMUS+ funded Advancing Skill Creation to ENhance Transformation (ASCENT) project that aimed (2016-2019) to build research and innovation (R&I) capacity in the Asia Region 6 (as per ERASMUS+ guidelines) to enable the development of societal resilience to disasters. In collaboration with some Asian partner institutions from Thailand, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, a comprehensive methodology was utilised to examine research and innovation (R&I) practices. The methodology comprises a series of data collection and analysis methods to ensure that a diverse and accurate view of R&I activities for disaster resilience in the featured Asian region was considered. First, a systematic literature review was undertaken to explore the current role that research and innovation plays in disaster resilience in the selected Asian countries. Significant papers in the topic were reviewed, with a focus on exploring the main factors of research and innovation practice in general and specifically for disaster resilience related subject.
