The Infrastructure Risk Special Interest Group is intended for individuals interested in all aspects of infrastructure risk as it relates to design; construction; management; funding; insurance; technology advances and resilience.
Group aims and objectives
Our overarching aim is to help improve project performance within the Infrastructure space, both in the UK and internationally, by helping to improve the application of risk management thinking and process. In order to achieve this we will help shape and inform the development of ‘best’ practice risk management across projects, programmes and portfolios by providing a platform to:
1) Review existing and emerging risk management tools and techniques
2) Understand specific risks to infrastructure projects – supply chain, contract, natural hazard etc
3) Learn from risk management practice in high profile project case studies
4) Develop guidance for risk management
5) Serve as a forum for networking for risk management practitioners within the Infrastructure community
