Raw Milk Series - Part 3

The Institute for Risk and Uncertainty at the University of Liverpool will host this third event in our three-part Raw Milk series. These day-long events are open to the public and feature invited speakers, proffered presentations and posters, session on collaborations and proposal opportunities, and open discussion on the advantages and risks of raw milk, use and misuse of statistics, consumer protection regulations, and the challenges of balancing costs and benefits in any decision.

Humans depend on a diverse, protective microflora of bacteria. Some argue that pasteurisation of milk robs consumers of essential health benefits. Others worry that raw milk can carry disease bacteria leading to illness or even death. This event will feature open discussion on the efficacy and ethics of regulating a burgeoning industry whilst protecting public health.

SIPTA School 2020

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the school will be postponed to a new yet unknown date, or until testing kits with a very high specificity will be largely available to the population.

The Risk Institute is very lucky to host the next SIPTA (The Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications) summer school. The school will run from Monday to Friday, 13 - 17 July 2020.

We warmly invite all the students and researchers in imprecise probability (IP) to participate. If you are new to IP and wonder what it is and whether you’re interested, here is an introduction.

Fondazione CIME Summer School

We are happy to announce the Fondazione CIME Summer School on "Numerical methods for forward and inverse Uncertainty Quantification", which will be held in Cetraro, Italy from August 31 to September 4, 2020 and is organized by Profs. Fabio Nobile, Andrew Stuart and Raul Tempone.

The school includes the following 4 courses:

  • A. Cohen (Sorbonne University): High dimensional approximation of parametric and stochastic PDEs
  • F. Nobile (EPFL), R. Tempone (RWTH Aachen & KAUST): Hierarchical sampling methods for Uncertainty Quantification
  • H. Rauhut (RWTH Aachen): Compressive sensing for parametric and stochastic PDEs
  • A. Stuart (Caltech): Inverse Problems and Applications
  • More details available on the CIME webpage

    Seeing the Risks for the Trees: Wood Products Industrial Study Group

    The University of Liverpool’s Institute for Risk and Uncertainty, in conjunction with the Adhesive Free Timber Buildings project (http://www.nweurope.eu/aftb), will host a two- or three-day study group this autumn to discuss and address emergent problems facing the timber and forestry sector. Potential topics include:

    • Wind damage, fire, pests and diseases
    • Material grading when wood products are reclaimed, recycled, or newly sourced
    • Phytosanitation in the hyperconnected world
    • Environmental impacts of forestry and wood products

    These study groups bring together academia and industry providing an opportunity for structured, intense interactive sessions over three days. It allows industry to gain access to UK excellence in the fields of mathematics, statistics, engineering, and environmental science and computer science. It likewise exposes academics to practical and emergent problems of broad industrial concern.

    This event is open to all interested persons, but registration is required. If you would like to suggest a question for the study group’s attention or would like more information please contact meeting@riskinstitute.uk.
