CDT Easter School 2016: Systems Approaches to Risk Assessment and Management

Group Photo of Easter School 2016

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) Easter School is an annual event that brings together world-leading experts, who are actively involved in research relating to aspects of uncertainty quantification and the analysis of complex systems, to provide focused training during a dedicated week.

A copy of the programme is already availble.

This year's speakers are:

  • Nicola Pedorni:  University Centrale Paris / Supelec, France;
  • Mike Poole: Radioactive Waste Management Ltd, Oxford, UK;
  • Ioannis Stratis: National University of Athens, Greece.

This is a unique opportunity, provided through the CDT, to learn from experts, which are senior in their areas of specialism, and authors of fundamental text books. This year the CDT Easter School will once more take place on campus in the new Risk Institute Facility (see map).
