September 2021

We are pleased to announce the 9th European Risk Conference organised by the European Risk Research Network (ERRN). The conference will take place in September 2021 at the University of Verona, more precisely in the campus called Polo scientifico didattico “Studi sull’Impresa” located in Vicenza (Italy).

The city of Vicenza is placed in Veneto region, halfway between Venice and Verona. It is a medium-sized town, with a population of 110,000. For several centuries it was governed by Venice; then Napoleon, then the Austrians. In 1866 it became part of the new Kingdom of Italy. Vicenza was a prosperous town under Venetian rule, and its pride was demonstrated in fine architecture, much of which still survives. Its ‘unique appearance,’ largely owing to the work of influential sixteenth-century architect Andrea Palladio, has led to the town’s designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site: City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto. After Palladio, Vicenza is most famous for its trade in precious metals. Indeed, it is also known as the City of gold. It is a lovely town to visit, with a beautiful, compact town centre and attractive villas and viewpoints in the hills a short walk away.

Further information on the Conference, the Call for Papers and the Doctoral Colloquium will be available soon.

We look forward to welcoming you in Vicenza!
