AREA: Risk Awareness and Risk Evaluation in the Arctic.

The AREA project's main objective is to enhance shared risk awareness and risk evaluation in the Arctic operations. The project aims to generate a knowledge-based research on identifying risk factors for more effective decision - making for Arctic operations, for actors both on-board and on-shore.  

The AREA project aims to understand how the experience and knowledge of the previous maritime emergencies and the Arctic risk in maritime operations can contribute to a dynamic risk awareness for supporting decision-making for safer operations in the Arctic. Using an interdisciplinary approach combining disaster risk management, organizational studies and computer modelling perspectives we will focus on several sub-questions in the following three work packages.
