Risk Analysis and Risk Communication

Combining expertise in science, engineering, economics, decision analysis, psychology, and behavioral decision theory, EPP is home to one of the world's leading research programs in risk analysis and risk communication. Our work ranges from the analysis of new and underappreciated risks, to ways of improving risk management and regulation. We study public perception and how we can increase common understanding of risks and encourage active public participation in risk-related decisions.
