You asked and we listened! Thanks to the recommendations from the independent UR evaluation, the UR community convened for a 2018 Understanding Risk Forum (UR2018) planning meeting.
The workshop was attended by 30 community members from the private sector, multilateral institutions, space agencies, research institutes, academia and government. Read the summary notes.
The day consisted of conversations on the following:
- SWOT analysis of the UR Community: Strengthens, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats
- New ways of engaging people in sessions and events
- Vision exercise: what do we want UR2018 to focus on based on how we would think in 2, 5, 10, 50 years?
- UR2018 session ideas and emerging trends in the field
- Registration fee
- Travel fund
- Steering committee
In addition to the in-person participants, we received a number of ideas via an online form. Many of the submissions were covered at one point during the day, but for those that were not, they are listed in “Virtual contributions”.
Thank you to all who participated and those who sent in your ideas. We will send out a formal Call for Session Proposals in September 2017.
