SRA - Europe: Who are we

The Society for Risk Analysis - Europe aims to bring together individuals and organisations interested in risk assessment, risk management and risk communication in Europe.

Europe ImageThe Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) was founded in response to the need for an interdisciplinary society which would address emerging issues in risk analysis, management and policy. It operates world-wide with International Sections in North America, Europe and Japan.

The Society encourages those interested in all aspects of risk analysis to communicate, collaborate and develop new methodologies for risk analysis and risk management.SRA-E emphasises the European dimension in the promotion of interdisciplinary research and education, and in practical application in industry and Government. It provides a platform for industrialists, policy makers and academics to discuss the ‘state of the art’ and future directions in the study of risk analysis, to understand concerns about risk from both public and scientific perspectives, to promote efficient risk mitigation and to develop effective communication about hazards. It is also an opportunity for risk analysts to come together to discuss issues, problems, goals and future research questions. New areas for risk analysis are emerging and new disciplines are contributing to the ongoing debate about risk analysis and management. The Society for Risk Analysis - Europe encourages and facilitates communication among experts in all risk domains via conferences and meetings.
