The ERRN was established in 2006 with the aim of stimulating cross disciplinary research in the area of risk management and providing an exceptional training ground for the next generation of academic researchers, regulators and practitioners.
The network includes academics and industry experts from the disciplines of accounting, auditing, accounting control, financial economics and mathematical finance, and the research is both quantitative and qualitative in style.
The EU's Marie Curie Actions programme has provided the network with the funding to run the first four linked conferences on risk management systems, governance and internal control. The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), a member of IFAC and a leading global professional accounting body, is an associate partner to the network.
The 5th European Risk Conference was held in Luxembourg on 13-14th September 2012. Details of the programme and presenters can be found on the links to the left.
The primary aim of the conference series is to educate and train new researchers in the area of risk management and internal control. A doctoral colloquium and the opportunity to present full conference papers form core elements of this training.
ERRN member Cormac Bryce from Nottingham University has been successful in raising funding for an ESRC Seminar Series on “People Risk.” Details of the series, which takes a multi-disciplinary perspective on the problem, can be found here.
The first seminar is scheduled for Wednesday 4th December 2013
The keynote speaker is Professor Mary Dixon-Woods , Professor of Medical Sociology at the University of Leicester. She will be discussing "How hard can it be to know whether a hospital is safe?"
