Establishment of regional groups within SRA Europe

Establishment of regional groups within SRA Europe


SRA Europe is investigating the possibilities of establishing regional groups within the organisation. Steps are being taken to organize such group in countries in the north of Europe, in particular in Sweden and in Norway, and in the Benelux region (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg).

Members who are interested in establishing such a regional group in another region of Europe are cordially invited to contact the SRA Europe Executive Committee at sraeurope@eu-vri.eu or any Committee member.

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe


SRA Europe is a non-profit organization that aims to bring together individuals and organisations interested in risk assessment, risk management and risk communication in Europe. Our main activity in this respect is, of course, the SRA Europe conference, that is held annually at varying locations within Europe.


As an organization SRA Europe depends on the efforts of a small group of researchers and other professionals who are willing to  put in some of their time and energy. These individuals come from different countries and represent different disciplinary backgrounds, interests and expertise. Ways to contribute vary, including such tasks as joining the Scholarship Committee, taking on committee functions such as treasurer, secretary or president, taking responsibility for the content of the website or organizing the annual meeting.


Members who are interested in contributing to the Society are cordially invited to send an email to the SRA Europe Committee through sraeurope@eu-vri.eu or contact any of the Committee members. We are happy to answer any question you might have.
