Risk Summits.

The Risk Summit is an annual two-day event run by the Centre for Risk Studies that brings together senior executives and decision makers from business, government and industry backgrounds, as well as researchers from varied disciplines, to explore the current pressing issues in risk management. The Risk Summit is organised to include plenary sessions, research showcases and networking events including a formal dinner at one of the University of Cambridge’s colleges. 

The Centre for Risk Studies’ conference Organising Committee selects speakers of diverse professional backgrounds and research interests to present at the Risk Summit. Attendees have the opportunity to engage in debate regarding the topics presented and generate frameworks that help form the agenda for the Centre’s latest research programme. Papers contributed by faculty and researchers may also be presented.
