The CREATE program brings together some of the finest scholars and researchers in the fight against terrorism.—Secretary Michael Chertoff U.S. Department of Homeland Securty
CREATE's mission is to improve our Nation's security through the development of advanced models and tools for the evaluation of the risks, costs and consequences of terrorism to guide economically viable investments in homeland security.
CREATE's research activities cover three interconnected modeling and analysis areas:
Risk Assessment involves an investigation of the threats, vulnerabilities and consequences of terorism attacks.
Economic Assessment includes the estimation of direct and indirect economic impacts, resilience, and cost-benefit analyses of counter-terrorism options.
Risk Management comprises the development, evaluation and implementation of alternative ways to prevent, protect or respond to terrorism.
CREATE has a range of educational programs that train students and professionals in an effort to develop the next generation of homeland security leaders and enhance the knowledge of the current workforce focused on these critical issues
