Lund University Centre for Risk Assessment and Management

The main mission for LUCRAM is to serve as a dynamic, forward thinking resource for risk management research at Lund University. More specifically, the tasks and objectives include:

  • To contribute to the long term competence build-up in risk management research and education.
  • To serve as a resource centre for university risk management research and facilitate inter-departmental research projects.
  • To operate an innovative and forward-thinking research programme.
  • To be a contact forum between the university departments and external organisations by conducting seminars, workshops and other communication activities

LUCRAM is truly multi-disciplinary and spans over a broad field of research interests within risk analysis and management. In order to facilitate for finding and collaborating with researchers from other fields with similar research interests, and to strengthen links to external organisations with specific interests, LUCRAM is hosting research clusters.
Cluster for Emergency Response Research (CERR)
Cluster for International Disaster Studies  (CIDS) Leonardo da Vinci Laboratory for Complexity and Systems Thinking 

LUCRAM has a vibrant research community involved in a variety of research projects. The major research projects at the moment are:
FRIVA, Framework programme "Risk and Vulnerability analysis of technological and social systems" 
Improving Emergency and Crisis Management 
Implementing Risk and Vulnerability Analyses 

There are also a number of associated projects , where LUCRAM researchers are involved, which substantially contributes to competence and activities within LUCRAM although the projects formally are placed at other centres or at departments.
