In recent years, SRA Europe has awarded a number of scholarships to students who submitted (extended) abstracts of exceptional quality (as judged by members of the committee) to the annual conference. These scholarships are aimed at covering the costs of attending the Annual Conference.
This year, SRA Europe was offered the opportunity to award an additional student scholarship. This scholarship was granted by ExxonMobil in honour of Ortwin Renn. SRA Europe was free to develop the selection criteria and ExxonMobil in no way exerted any influence on the selection process.
In line with Ortwin’s focus on applied research and governance, the Board of SRA Europe decided to award the new prize to an additional student with a focus on applied risk research.
We are pleased to announce that this year the Ortwin Renn Student Prize for Applied Risk Research, sponsored by ExxonMobil is awarded to:
- Hanna Landquist, Chalmers university of technology, Göteborg (Sweden)
Hanna received her award for the presentation:
