Two of the key aims of the Centre are to encourage a deeper appreciation of the nature of risk and to develop approaches to its identification, analysis and management. To help achieve these objectives members of the Centre collaborate with researchers in institutions worldwide and disseminate their work at international conferences. The Centre also actively promotes and hosts conferences and seminars which address risk related issues.
