One of our aims is that research, education and collaboration should contribute to a safer and more sustainable society on all levels. RiskLab® enables communication and visualisation of our research questions in an accessible and entertaining way.
RiskLab is an environment that has grown to communicate transdisciplinary research results about oftentimes complex processes in simple and engaging ways. RiskLab is also a physical meeting place where new research questions are created and data gathering in various forms are made possible.
Several of the tools in RiskLab has been developed with a specific focus on awareness of climate related risks but the tools also make possible a wider focus where participants are encouraged to discuss overarching questions on societal safety, planning and sustainable development.
Besides clear connections to the research conducted at CSR one important aim with the development of RiskLab and its pedagogic tools is that the environment should come to use in education at the university.
In RiskLab we adhere to the power of the creative meeting for learning and problem solving. Participants are encouraged to engage and work together to create awareness and new ideas or to try out new ways of working. RiskLab is an adaptable environment for learning where we welcome different groups, from primary school to university or societal actors in Sweden and internationally.
