World Congress on Risk 2015



Event Dates

Sunday, 19 July 2015 to Thursday, 23 July 2015

The World Congress on Risk 2015 (see brochure) was the fourth in the series of World Congresses organized by the SRA and its partner organizations. SRA held the first World Congress on Risk in Brussels, Belgium in 2003, the second World Congress on Risk in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2008, and the third in Sydney, Australia in 2012. The overall theme of the 2015 World Congress was Risk Analysis for Sustainable Innovation, highlighting sessions that identified ways that risk analysis can assist private and public policy makers facing complex and uncertain challenges while maintaining innovation and development. Special emphasis was placed on the role of risk analysis as a tool for policy making and tradeoffs in situation of limited resources and extreme challenges that are characteristic of developing countries. A list of members of the Organizing Committee for the World Congress is available here.
