• Industrial projects: Further setting-up industrial projects (e.g. refineries, power plants and other industrial plants, involving more members of EU-VRi in one team) and PPP (public-private-partnership) projects
  • Products & Services (ERRA): Increased use of products for particular services based on them, e.g. “risk-assessment-as-a-service” or “resilience-assessment-as-a-service”, e.g. those based on the SmartResilience “Resilience Tool” or the PSMS safety evaluation system, using the experience from the EU-VRi projects and activities. The ERRA initiative is expected to play a special role in this process.
  • Standardization: The work in the EU research projects led to the standardization actions and documents such as ISO 31050 (“Guidance for management of emerging risks for enhanced resilience”) and the EN standard in the area of RBI (Risk-Based Inspection Framework – EN 16991:2018). This work will be pursued further in 2020-21. Consolidate and further develop international collaboration and presence: China, India, South Africa, USA, Japan, Canada… EU-VRi has members or partners in all the parts of the world. Some of them have specific opportunities where risks have to be tackled, such as the initiative leading to the “Road & Belt” Risk and Resilience Radar.
  • Education and training: Continuous collaboration with universities and educational institutions in the area of risk management/engineering education, both those within EU-VRi and those outside of EU-VRi (e.g. Uni Torino, SUPSI,…).
  • Mobility: Development of a coordinated mobility program for young scientists within EU-VRi grouping and the partnerships in projects (e.g. in the new Marie-Currie project DECODE).
