 The 2nd CDT Easter School, in April 2016 at the University of Liverpool – themed on ‘Systems Approaches to Risk Assessment and Management’ – provides the unique opportunity for delegates to learn directly from the following 3 experts:

  • Assistant Professor Nicola Pedroni, University Centrale Paris / Supelec, France

  • Dr Mike Poole, Radioactive Waste Management Ltd, Oxford, UK

  • Professor Ioannis Stratis, National University of Athens, Greece

Each of these experts is giving a series of master-classes, these inclusive of problem-based interactive elements. At the end of each day of the programme, delegates also have the option to gain more targeted guidance from holding individual (surgery-style) meetings with the visiting experts related to their specific research activities.

Attendance at the Easter School 2016 is free of charge.

 

Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantification and Management of Risk & Uncertainty in Complex Systems & Environments is funded by EPSRC and ESRC.
