- SIG secretariat will support networking activities and broker actively the collaborative projects.
- A number of collaborative mechanisms will be available to members. They will include CASE awards, KTPs and Industrial Mathematics Internships.
- A series of workshops will be held to discuss and inform future funding strategies for NERC and the Technology Strategy Board in the area of environmental risk management.
A workshop on Risk Visualisation will be held at Lloyd's of London on the 11th March 2010 to discuss Risk Visualisation challenges.If you would like to register as a member of the SIG, please email Dr Vera Hazelwood and give your name, affiliation, position, area of research or expertise and the reason for becoming a member of the SIG.
