The theme for SRA Europe Conference 2023 is Risk and assessment in a changing world.
The theme reflects that the world is changing; we have experienced a societal disruption due to global hazards like the pandemic and climate change where environments or institutions that have been taken for granted suddenly are in danger, which forces us to consider new risks requiring careful development of concepts and theories as well as novel approaches for assessment. In addition, the flow of information and disinformation, the urge to deal with complex and uncertain problems, and the desire for quality and transparency in science to policy processes, are challenging the knowledge, skills and expertise required for assessment, management, and governance of risk.
We want the SRA Europe conference in Lund to be an opportunity to visualise the benefit of scientific perspectives on risk in research and in science policy relations, and the need to include these perspectives in higher education.
You are welcome to submit an abstract for a talk or poster, participate in a workshop, or just join in to listen and discuss.
Ullrika Sahlin (chair), Henrik Thorén (co-chair), and Alexander Tagesson (student chair).
