Our group has active participation in the framework programs of the European Commission in the area of Major Industrial Hazards and Risk Assessment. In these projects, we collaborate with leading European organizations paving the way to the introduction of new risk based approaches to the regulatory framework for installations handling hazardous materials and subject to the SEVESO directives.
