Risk & Resilience Festival

Join the risk community - RISK & RESILIENCE FESTIVAL 

On 10 November 2022, the Risk & Resilience Festival; safety doesn't happen by accident, will be organised on the campus of the University of Twente. A festival where the theme of safety is central. The festival serves as a platform for sharing knowledge and expertise. The mutual interaction between speakers and participants makes the festival so successful. The festival is organised together with PRIMO and the Society for Risk Management.


The BMS lab will show the possibilities of Virtual Reality. VR is an online environment in which a realistic situation is imitated. This offers opportunities for both entertainment and research. The BMS lab supports researchers in their studies in which Virtual Reality plays a role.

Ransomware. You hear it everywhere, but how exactly does it work? During the festival it is possible to experience a ransomware attack yourself at the ESET booth. Through set-up systems you crawl into the eyes of an attacker and encrypt a victim's system. Usually and also now this starts with a phishing email. Are you there?

In addition, various information stands will be set up and there will be poster presentations by the Master Risk Management students. By means of posters, they give a short explanation of their thesis and the issue they have dealt with.

Global to local

Safety plays a role on different levels. From global climate challenges to global safety, to national safety, to organisational safety, to local safety tasks to everyone's personal safety. These themes and their mutual interaction will be discussed during the festival. After all, problems that occur on one level often have an effect on other levels.
