On April 24, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE) will celebrate its 10-year anniversary with a one-day event highlighting its contributions and advancements in homeland security and the future of the Center and its research. It is also 10 years since the establishment of the DHS University Centers of Excellence (COE) Program. Throughout these years, CREATE has made great strides in modeling the risks and economic impacts of terrorism and natural disasters, with results that have benefited the United States.

Established in 2004 as the first DHS COE, CREATE is an interdisciplinary national research center funded by the DHS and based at the University of Southern California.

The Center is focused on risk and economic analysis and comprises an interdisciplinary team of experts from across the country, including partners from numerous universities and research institutions. CREATE serves national interests by providing counterterrorism tools and guidance to DHS, as well as state, regional, and local decision-makers. CREATE research focuses on prioritizing terrorism countermeasures, computing risks for potential terrorist events, and estimating the societal consequences of terrorism.
