Welcome to Östersund!
The SRA Europe conference 2018 was held at Mid Sweden University in Östersund, a small town close to the mountains in the north of Sweden. During the conference, participants experienced the longest day of the year when the sun rises at 2.50 a.m., only a few hours after it sets.
The SRA-Europe 2018 conference had the topic: Risk & Uncertainty – From Critical Thinking to Practical Impact
The focus of the conference was on developing the academic discourse on risk considerations and its practical applications— specifically in the contemporary era of increased uncertainty and apparent increased salience of questioning research and facts in (some) public decision-making processes. The aim of the conference is to facilitate the exchange of ideas, problems, solutions, and emerging research agendas among researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.
This conference gathered academics, policy makers, and practicioners interested in risk research, policy, and practice, including members of the SRA-E, SRA International and other regional SRA organizations.
