Engineering a safer world – register now for the LRF conference

Safety is a driving concern behind the Resilience Shift’s urgent need to accelerate critical infrastructure resilience. Our supporting partner, Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s 2019 conference is the place to hear the latest thought leadership on the world’s biggest safety challenges.

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation international thought leadership conference, Engineering a Safer World, takes place this year on 9-10 October 2019. The conference is free and will be at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London.

Register here.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Lloyd’s Register Foundation sharing its new strategy and discussing possible future partnerships and collaboration opportunities.

This year’s programme includes some of the most exciting thinkers, business leaders, innovators, and policymakers who will debate new approaches and perspectives for tackling global safety challenges.

The Resilience Shift’s Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian, will be participating in a panel on learning from the past along with speakers from the Health and Safety Executive, the National Maritime Museum and University College London.

Whether Cape Town: Day Zero, the City Water Resilience Approach, EARTH EX, or Christchurch’s regeneration – a key element of our activities to enhance resilience is about bringing different stakeholders together to pool their knowledge and explore their interdependencies. Juliet will have much to contribute to the discussion from our work in addition to her extensive experience as an infrastructure resilience expert.

Debates this year focus primarily on closing the gap between public perception and actual risk, the role of wellbeing in keeping safe, harnessing emerging technology, and the latest developments in research to make the world a safer place.

BBC science broadcaster Quentin Cooper is hosting, and speakers include:

Paul Slovic, Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon whose most recent research examines “psychic numbing” and the failure to respond to mass human tragedies – such as those from tragic safety accidents.

Kriti Sharma, Artificial Intelligence technologist and a leading global voice on AI ethics and its impact on society. In addition to advising global businesses on AI, she focuses on AI for Social Good.

Timandra Harkness, Science writer, BBC Radio 4 broadcaster and comedian. Timandra will be performing her show ‘Take A Risk’, which completed its run at the Edinburgh Fringe over the summer.
