CERS - Risk and Security Study Center

Details


In the Autumn 2004, the “International Centre for Security Studies” (ICSS) is established under the direction of Prof. Giorgio Goggi. On 29th June 2005, the inauguration day takes place at Collegio Borromeo. Then, a cycle of seminars, related to several Security aspects, is organized.

In the October 2006 the Centre has a new Director: Prof. Oreste Nicrosini. He decides to give the Centre a new name: “Risk and Security Study Centre” (CeRS) in consideration that the Risk theme is strictly related to the Security aspects.
Under Nicrosini direction, during the year 2007, 2 research fellowships are activated (1 for the Security area and 1 for the Risk area) and also 3 research contracts are signed. Moreover, the Centre gives important contributions as articles or posters/speeches at international and national meetings and workshops.

In April 2008, the Center changes again its direction: the new Director is Prof. Paolo Gamba, already member of the Center Scientific Committee.


OBJECTIVES
  • The main objective of the CeRS it to promote and develop the Scientific Reserch activities in the filds of Risk (analisys and evaluation) and Security (evaluation tecniques, realization, safeguard).

  • The CeRS also promotes cultural and formative activities

Both kind of activities (research, formation) follow a multidiciplinary approach and support those complementary subjects like: engineering; medicine; physics; maths; economy; history.
