Summer School CASCARIX : Cascading effects and risk management

from September 3, 2019 to September 5, 2019

Nearly 30 participants attended the three days of conferences of speakers who came to share their expertise, wether they are part of a research process, private actors or managers of local authorities. A morning was dedicated to a workshop simulation, a test run for a serious game organized by the doctoral students of the CDP RISK rich in cascading risk learning: the support will be modeled fo future scenarios.

Context and objectives

The combination of several risks and the associated domino effects are the subject of extensive research in engineering sciences, taking into account complex models. The consideration of the social dimensions of the management of these cascading risks is less developed. The challenge is both scientific, to take greater account of multidisciplinarity in the combined risk approach, and pragmatic, to manage crisis situations or take appropriate decisions to avoid the occurrence of other events.

The objective of this summer school is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students from the CDP Risk, as well as doctoral students and researchers from other universities, to exchange their scientific knowledge and experience on cascading phenomena.
