The Nordic Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis Europe (SRA-E Nordic) invites you to its 5th conference that will be held in Copenhagen.
The objective of the SRA-e Nordic Nordic 2019 conference is to provide a multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of knowledge and expertise on theories, methods and practices in the field of risk management within the Nordic and Baltic countries (Denmark (incl. Greenland), Faroe Islands, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia).
The witnessed profound and rapid technological changes come with their negative and often pervasive and not fully understood effects. Any new technology making use of digitalisation, new materials, environmental technologies, etc., comes with new risks. Innovation may impact fields beyond the obvious primary areas of harm, introducing new, yet potentially unknown, hazards and risks.
Clearly, there is a strong need for coping with these challenges by all available and yet being developed means of risk management including the involvement of all affected parties.
The conference will bring together the Nordic and Baltic research community on Risk Analysis of innovative products and technologies. The target audience are academics and practitioners interested in the assessment, characterization, communication, management and policy of the risks connected to innovation, such as risk to human health, the environment and other. The conference will be the breeding ground for student participants. Events such as a poster session and career development opportunities will enable student participants to build a strong network within the community.
The Risk Forum and Workshops are special events scheduled on the pre-conference day, 6 November.
Contribution types: abstract and posters. Abstracts for oral and poster presentations as well as workshops must be prepared by using the provided templates.
Venue: IDA Conference Center, Kalvebod Brygge 31-33 I 1780, Copenhagen.
