The last day of the online event is an opportunity to reflect on the first two days: both the international perspective and the sector’s perspective on how to manage risk and resilience.
Students on the Master Risk Management course have brought together the conclusions and actions from both the preceding days to create a joint agenda for research and practice that will be presented to the participants and to today’s keynote speaker: Prof. Marjolein van Asselt, a member of the Dutch Safety Board. In her keynote speech, Prof. Van Asselt will discuss the agenda and the contributions which the Board has made and can make to the central theme of the event.
In discussion with a panel made up of representatives of the Dutch Risk Management Association, PRIMO Netherlands and the University of Twente, participants will then explore certain obstacles and challenges in order to transform the agenda for research and practice into concrete actions.
The Dutch Risk Management Association will also present the annual Study Award on the last day of the event. This prize clearly demonstrates the importance of the connection between science and the practical field to the discipline of Risk Management, which has only existed for 25 years so far, and to the even more recent perspective of Resilience.
