The Risk Institute has pioneered a format for bringing together academics and people from industry, business and NGOs to collaborate on real problems in workshops over one or a few days of intense interaction. It allows interaction without requiring an initial large commitment from industrial partners.

The workshop format provides opportunities for industry to gain access to UK excellence in the fields of uncertainty quantification, risk analysis, mathematics, statistics, engineering, and computer science. Industrialists present a challenge and work collaboratively over a three day period with academics from the Risk Institute and our partners from across the UK and Europe. This format has proven to be extremely successful proving ground in a number of cases and has led to on-going collaborations.
