Get familiar with "emerging risks" and management of "emerging risks"!

In the framework of the DEG project SafeChina herewith, we announce the forthcoming course

IVA-R17 EmRISK
Emerging Risks

November 10 - 11, 2012
Beijing, China

Lecturer: Aleksandar, S. Jovanovic

The course is part of a modern and modular European Master and Certification Program set up in the EU project iNTeg-Risk by Steinbeis University (STI Advanced Risk Technologies) and other project partners.

The course introduces and transfers knowledge on emerging risks and management of emerging risks. The risks considered as "emerging" are primarily the risks previously not recognized as such, e.g. the risks due to new processes, new technologies, new ways of working or risks due to social or organizational changes (the risks linked to nanotechnologies, bio-technology, new chemicals, outsourcing, globalization are practical examples tackled within the course). The risks due to the change in public perception or new scientific knowledge are considered as well.

The main objective of the course is to introduce the concept of "emerging risks" and explain to the students the issues of early recognition, classification and monitoring of emerging risks. Further the course will present frameworks, procedure and factors of emerging risks. Particular attention will be paid to the methodology to deal with these risks. The methodology, as expected, requires new methods and tools. These methods and tools will be elaborated during the course, concentrating in particular onto indicators and modern IT tools, including the application of data mining and web semantics.

Many interesting examples as well as results from the current EU and other research projects will be highlighted and explained in detail to the course participants.

This course is dedicated to the professionals with or without previous experience in the field of risk engineering and management and to the students of the different study programs tackling in general the issues of risk. The structure of the courses units, methodology of leading the course will allow even to the beginners in this field to understand and adopt main topics.

The participants of the course will particularly benefit from lecturing done by experts actually leading or participating in the most important research and development projects in EU dedicated to the emerging risks.

Issues of early recognition, classification and monitoring of emerging risks. As “emerging” are considered primarily risks previously not recognized as such, such as risks due to new processes, new technologies, new ways of working or social or organizational change (e.g. risks liked to nanotechnologies, bio-technology, new chemicals, outsourcing, globalization…). In addition also the known risks emerging due to the change in public perception or new scientific knowledge are considered.

The methodology to deal with these risks require new tools and these are presented at the course, concentrating in particular onto the use of concepts like UML (unified modeling language), indicators and modern IT tools, including the application of data mining. Examples and results from the current EU and other research will be highlighted and explained in detail to the course participants.
