In response to this prestigious invitation Dr Brito commented: “The first time I attended the ESREL conference was nine years ago, in Stavanger, Norway. I met a great group people who were very enthusiastic about discussing new approaches to risk and decision making. This was one of the main reasons why I decided to undertake research on these topics. It is a privilege and honour to join this working group.”
