Ortwin Renn Student Prize for Applied Risk Research

Ortwin Renn Student Prize for Applied Risk Research

In recent years, SRA Europe has awarded a number of scholarships to students who submitted (extended) abstracts of exceptional quality (as judged by members of the committee) to the annual conference.  These scholarships are aimed at covering the costs of attending the Annual Conference.  

This year, SRA Europe was offered the opportunity to award an additional student scholarship. This scholarship was granted by ExxonMobil in honour of Ortwin Renn. SRA Europe was free to develop the selection criteria and ExxonMobil in no way exerted any influence on the selection process.

In line with Ortwin’s focus on applied research and governance, the Board of SRA Europe decided to award the new prize to an additional student with a focus on applied risk research.

We are pleased to announce that this year the Ortwin Renn Student Prize for Applied Risk Research, sponsored by ExxonMobil is awarded to:

  • Hanna Landquist, Chalmers university of technology, Göteborg (Sweden)

    Hanna received her award for the presentation:  

    Landquist,K.S.,  L. Rosén, L., Lindhe, A. & Hassellöv, I.M.

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe

Invitation to take an active role in SRA Europe

SRA Europe is a non-profit organization that aims to bring together individuals and organisations interested in risk assessment, risk management and risk communication in Europe. Our main activity in this respect is, of course, the SRA Europe conference, that is held annually at varying locations within Europe.

As an organization SRA Europe depends on the efforts of a small group of researchers and other professionals who are willing to  put in some of their time and energy. These individuals come from different countries and represent different disciplinary backgrounds, interests and expertise. Ways to contribute vary, including such tasks as joining the Scholarship Committee, taking on committee functions such as treasurer, secretary or president, taking responsibility for the content of the website or organizing the annual meeting.

Members who are interested in contributing to the Society are cordially invited to send an email to the SRA Europe Committee through or contact any of the Committee members. We are happy to answer any question you might have.
