DTU RiskLab Forum: “Digitalization – Smart or Scary?”

As part of the SRA Nordic Conference 2019, we are organizing the 7th DTU RiskLab Forum.

The RiskLab Forum is a format that brings together risk practitioners from industry, government and academia. We explore, debate and share experiences on current hot topics in risk management.

The Forums are organized around three main elements: Short impulse talks by leading experts in the field, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities.

The 7th DTU RiskLab Forum will be held in conjunction with the 5th SRA Nordic Conference on November 8 2019 in Copenhagen. The topic will be “Digitalization – Smart or Scary?”. Together, we will explore three major themes in this context:

  • Smart system reliability and safety: What are the implications of the vastly different innovation cycles and technological maturity that make up our complex cyber-physical systems, from autonomous cars to smart buildings? How can we safety-certify systems where critical components are under constant development, for example safety-critical autonomous systems?
  • Project and business opportunities and risks of smart systems: How can we better support project managers and senior executives in managing innovation projects that focus on digital innovation? How can we ensure that our risk management techniques span the technical, project and strategy space? How do we balance benefits and risks from an economic perspective?
  • Communicating and discussing risks and benefits of smart systems: How do we account for risk (and benefits) perception in the public discourse and regulation of “smart” systems, as well as the uneven distribution of their risks and benefits? How do we trade-off the additional benefits with the additional vulnerabilities we introduce? How do we discuss these issues as society?

Each topic will be introduced by an impulse talk of an internationally leading expert, followed by a workshop and experience exchange of the participants.
