Welcome to Trondheim 17 - 19 June 2013

The 22nd SRA-Europe conference will be held 17-19 June 2013 at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. The special theme of the conference is «Safe societies – coping with complexity and major risk», concerning challenges related to our society’s vulnerability to major risk of natural and industrial disasters, malicious attacks, financial breakdowns, and epidemic diseases.

The conference endeavors to facilitate cross-disciplinary research and collaboration across actors in the risk field to create safer societies by strengthening our ability to govern major risks and ensuring balanced development in a complex and uncertain world. It provides a forum for traditional SRA themes such as risk identification, quantification and mitigation, risk perception and communication, policy making and legislation, as well as opening up for new risk-related topics.

The conference is open to all interested researchers and experts in the various fields of risk analysis. Industry representatives are also encouraged to participate.
