The mission of SRA-Europe’s Benelux chapter is to promote the study and understanding of risk analysis in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. We support a two-way process for generating and sharing knowledge within the region, in Europe and globally, between academics, policy makers and risk professionals in the industry. Due to their strategic position, Benelux countries have an important gateway function for continental Europe. The region is particularly exposed to physical and economic risks. Significant natural and technological hazards range from flooding to gas exploitation, from financial services to the transport of dangerous goods, from pharmaceutical to agro-food production. Therefore, the Benelux chapter’s upmost ambition is to make a difference for risk professionals in the Benelux region and SRA members more generally. The special objectives of the SRA-E Benelux are:
- To promote risk research and knowledge and understanding of risk analysis techniques within the Benelux countries.
- To identify and address specifically issues common to Benelux countries in the field of risk, to promote debate, and to impress upon decision-makers the usefulness of risk research, critical analyses and risk analysis in dealing with such issues. To act as a focal point for communication with risk researchers and analysts in other parts of the world.
- To facilitate exchanges of information and opinion between professionals in industry, government, universities, research institutes, and consultancies, with the aim of furthering research and improving the practical application of risk analysis and risk management.
- To convene and promote scientific and educational meetings on risk research, risk analysis and risk management in the Benelux countries.
