Call for Abstracts

The Nordic Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA Nordic) invites abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations. We also invite submissions for workshops proposals.

Oral or poster presentation

We welcome abstracts and presentations on all topics related to risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, and national level. We encourage as well presentations focusing on risks of new technologies, accounting, in particular, for interaction of societal actors and innovators, public perception and acceptance, and stakeholder engagement.

We expect that the conference will provide a representative overview of practices and advances in risk management in the Nordic and Baltic countries. For a detailed program click here.

Student Event

We invite submissions of research posters for our Poster Session on Day 1 of the conference, the 7th of November. Specifically, we invite students (PhD, Master and similar) to submit a poster about their research projects. There will be a prize draw for best poster submissions.

Conference proceedings

The book of abstracts will be published.


Risk Forum


The 7th Risk Forum will be held in conjunction with the 5th SRA Nordic Conference on November 8, 2019 in Copenhagen. The topic will be “Digitalization – Smart or Scary?”. The Risk Forum is a format that brings together risk practitioners from industry, government and academia. We explore, debate and share experiences on current hot topics in risk management. The Forums are organized around three main elements: Short impulse talks by leading experts in the field, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities.
