Risk Masters

Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience

The Risk Masters is delivered in close collaboration with the Institute of Hazards, Risk and Resilience, Durham's leading research centre currently developing resilient, research-informed approaches to hazard and risk.

The Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience is harnessing the capacity of researchers from across Durham University to make a difference to how we live with emerging hazards and risks. Making a difference means moving beyond what we already do, to challenge the core assumptions, scientific, economic and social, about how we live with hazard and risk. This can only be done through critical engagements that bring together researchers from across the Natural and Social Sciences, Engineering, Health and Humanities. We are championing key research programmes in hazards, vulnerability and frontier knowledge. Our Graduate Programme, training students to both Masters and Doctoral level, is equipping the next generation of researchers to address some of the fundamental challenges of the 21st Century. Our activities are housed in a purpose-built building with a dedicated staff, generously funded by private benefactions and University investments, as well from industry, government, NGOs and research councils.
