EmRISK: Emerging Risks
The course introduces and transfers knowledge on emerging risks, and management of emerging risks. As "emerging" are considered primarily risks previously not recognized as risks, such as risks due to new processes, new technologies, new ways of working or social or organizational change (e.g. risks linked to nanotechnologies, bio-technology, new chemicals, outsourcing, globalization...). In addition the known risks emerging due to the change in public perception or new scientific knowledge are considered as well.
