Join us for this year's SRA Annual Meeting in Denver. The Society for Risk Analysis is a remarkable association. Its members are scientists and practitioners trained in multiple disciplines who come from around the world. They are employed by government, industry, consulting firms, NGOs, academic institutions, and themselves. They seek one another’s company because they face problems requiring such diverse perspectives. This diversity of disciplines and perspectives is crucial for gaining better insights into the complex challenges of globalization and can help policy makers to cope with the growing uncertainties and ambiguities of policy making.
About the Event
The theme of the meeting is Risk Analysis: The Common Denominator, using the risk analysis framework and risk-related tools to evaluate and solve complex or divisive environmental and public health issues, such as hydraulic fracturing, legalized marijuana use, and natural disasters (like the recent Colorado floods). Special emphasis will also be placed on the better integration of environmental, community, and occupational risk assessment methods and approaches. There are many fantastic opportunities planned, some new and some that we enjoy every year. The preliminary program, registration form, pre-conference workshops, and program schedule will be posted below as they become available.
