CRAG Symposium: Uncertainty - From Insight to Action


Event details

Date 20.11.2013 22.11.2013

Risk is a matter of probability and severity, but there are uncertainties involved in their assessment. As a consequence, there are also uncertainties in the impact of the risk. Describing and dealing with technical uncertainties must not be ignored and is an important element of risk analysis and governance, allowing better informed decisions. The symposium will address the treatment of uncertainty for public and corporate planning and decision making.
