Establishment of the Benelux regional organisation

Establishment of a Benelux chapter

At the SRA Europe conference 2015 in Maastricht, SRA-E Benelux has formally been established as a regional organisation within SRA-Europe.

The BENELUX Chapter shares the aim with SRA Europe “to bring together individuals and organisations interested in risk assessment, risk management and risk communication in Europe”. 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. The Benelux countries include: Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.
  • 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.

Any member of SRA-Europe in the region (Belgium, Netherlands or Luxemburg) is considered to be a member of SRA Benelux. Those outside the region who have an interest are welcome to join if they wish to be part of SRA-E Benelux.

Membership is FREE.
