The main objective is the resolution of concrete problems which affect the industry or of subjects of public interest, in the
field of (quantitative) risk analysis, creating new tools or methods.

Many skills are today distributed in various domains, financial, industrial, academic,..., therefore the intention behind the creation of this group is: 

    to organize a structured dynamics in the field of risk analysis

    to facilitate the exchanges between professionals and academics

    to generate possible collaborations on identified problems

    to create and to work on research projects


To this end, regular meetings will include: 
  • presentations of articles or chapters of books
