The course explains principles of modern risk governance including its main elements as described in the IRGC framework:
  • pre-assessment 
  • risk appraisal
  • risk characterization and evaluation
  • risk management and e-risk communication.
Apart from each of the elements (e.g. under "Risk Assessment": hazard identification and estimation, exposure and vulnerability assessment, risk estimation, exposure and social concerns, socio-economic impacts) the examples from industrial practice will be shown and explained. A separate part of the course will be dedicated to the overview of specific methods and techniques (e.g. Delphi), as well as to the tools and instruments facilitating the application by industry, governments and public bodies.
