Promoting safety and public understanding of risks

We aim to make a recognised, distinctive impact on enhancing safety of critical infrastructure important for society through building scientific knowledge, promoting technology application, and enhancing the uptake of research evidence into policy and practice. We also support organisations where activities enhance the safety of life, property and the environment.  

We promote the dissemination of our research activities and findings to the wider general public in an accessible and understandable format in order to inform a balanced, informed debate on matters concerned with risk and safety and the questions they raise for societies. We will pursue this neutrally to promote public trust, without any motivational bias and not promoting any particular technology or agenda.
