Introduction

The great initiative of co-building the "Silk Road Economic Belt" and the "21st Century Maritime Silk Road" (Belt and Road Initiative, BRI) provides new opportunities to strengthen the international collaboration on infrastructure resilience and sustainability study.

Huaqiao University (HQU) is a unique university in China having one campus in Xiamen, a critical node on the ancient marine Silk Road, and another one in Quanzhou, the starting point of the ancient Maritime Silk Road. Xiamen city, as one of the earliest established Special Economic Zones in 1980s, is a beautiful, livable, lovable costal city. Bearing the mission of the new BTI era, Xiamen has focused on the new goals of the BRI to face international collaboration with a more confident attitude and to facilitate the construction of an important hub city on the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. Accompanying with the relocation of the College of Civil Engineering of HQU from Quanzhou to Xiamen, the development of the college entered a new era. Now the college has modern experimental study laboratories equipped with high performance test facilities. Two provincial key laboratories have been approved by the government, which provides valuable platforms to carry out high quality research and to train graduate students. In recent years, more new faculty members joined HQU and brought more power to the college.

Xi’an University of Architecture and Technology (XAUAT) is located in the well-known historical and cultural city of Xi’an, China, which is the eastern starting point of the Land Silk Road and one of the four great ancient capital cities with a history of over 3,100 years. The history of the XAUAT can be traced back to the Tianjin Beiyang School of Western Learning (Beiyang University) established in 1895. It has been known as one of the famous old eight universities in architecture and a leading higher education and research center in civil engineering and architecture in Northwestern China. XAUAT is also the home of the Key Laboratory for Structural Engineering and Seismic Resistance of Ministry of Education of China.

BRI is producing vast, often multilateral, infrastructure projects, creating huge demand for long-term resilient and sustainable infrastructure and BRI must be green and environment friendly for the purpose of protecting the common home we live in. The resilience and sustainability of infrastructures for BRI countries and other countries play key roles in supporting the transformation and upgrading of economic construction and development. Meanwhile, it plays key roles in avoiding structural, environmental, social and governance risks associated with the lifespan of each infrastructure project and achieving resource efficiencies, reducing environmental footprint, international collaboration, and getting long-term risk-adjusted returns from infrastructure developments.

It is critical to work with international thought leaders in the way of international collaboration without borders and to propose timely solutions to critical challenging tasks in realizing resilient and sustainable infrastructures under multi-hazards and harsh environment. In order to take advantage of the new opportunities coming with the BRI and to enhance international collaboration on infrastructure resilience and sustainability research, the College of Civil Engineering of HQU and the College of Civil Engineering of XAUAT decided to initiate an International Symposium on Infrastructure Resilience and Sustainability on Dec. 19-21, 2019. The two hosts of the symposium intend to establish a series symposium to be held in Xiamen and Xi’an alternately.
