Young Scientists Spring School “Risk and Safety”
Tbilisi Georgia - 13th Apr 2020
It is our sincere pleasure to welcome you to Young Scientists Spring School “Risk and Safety” from April 13-16, 2020 at Georgian Technical University, in the vibrant international city of Tbilisi, Georgia.
The RISK-2020 Spring School is limited to 60 participants, to ensure learning effectiveness. Candidates can enroll at the above “Registration” link, and will be asked to complete a short application form.
All of the students at various levels: bachelor’s, master’s, PhD, as well as recent PhD graduates – otherwise called early career researchers will to capitalize on the great opportunity to participate in training programs.
During the 13-16 April, every day there will be three 60-minute lectures,
10:00-11:00, 11:30-12:30, and 13:00-14:00. The course will be taught in English.
At the end of the Young Scientists Spring School, students take final exams, where they answer 200 questions in 3 hours. If the exam is successfully passed, the participants will receive İSO 31000 Professional Risk Manager Certificates C31000. The certificate is awarded on behalf of the International Accreditation Board for Risk Management, Global Institute for Risk Management Standards, Geneva, Switzerland.
Those students who did not pass the exams receive a Certificate of Attendance of the Spring School, with the signature and seal of the organizers.
Between lectures, coffee breaks will be organized. According to the organizers, such a schedule will allow students to actively participate in co-branded cultural events.
RISK-2020 Young Scientists Spring School participants will discuss recent scientific advances with our invited guest speakers and will have time to advance collaboration across projects. The program will include talks and lectures, exercises, a poster session and social activity.

RISK-2020 Satellite Symposium “Minimization of the Most Prevalent Project Risks in the Oil and Gas Industry”
Tbilisi Georgia - 15th Apr 2020
Risk management is an integral part of day-to-day business activities in the energy industry. Oil and gas companies face project risks, which along with partially are linked to increased health, safety, and environmental pressures resulting from past and recent major accidents negatively impacting the environment, industry image, and its social lease. However, risks related to asset damage, business interruption, pollution, injuries to people, and damage to properties, are intrinsic in normal oil and gas activities. Then there are the additional risks of non-compliance and of major cost overruns for large construction projects, particularly offshore deepwater oil platforms, so common in todays industry. Cyber threats targeting oil and gas companies around the world are increasing every day. These are just a few examples of the serious risks and threats that can impact oil and gas companies. Innovation technologies can help minimize these most prevalent project risks in the oil and gas industry.
Human and environment safety and health protection remains the number 1 priority for the oil and gas industry. These companies are used to dealing with stringent EHS regulations across the entire span of their activity, from exploration and production, to pipeline management, down to refinery and marketing. These regulations are not only stringent but also constantly revised to take into consideration technological development and the more extreme conditions in which oil and gas companies operate.
Additionally, recent major accidents – the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the Californian San Bruno pipeline explosion in 2010, the blowout and consequent fire on board of Sakhalin II Russia offshore platform in Okhotsk sea in 2013, the deadly fire broke out in the Gunashli Azerbaijan oilfield platform in the Caspian sea in 2015 – are strong reminders of the importance of being prepared for emergency situations and are constantly influencing the activity of national and international regulators.
Given the above facts and the need for organizations providing services in the field of industrial safety in the design, manufacture, construction and operation of offshore oil and gas facilities, the Organizing Committee of the Second Eurasian Conference RISK-2020 suggests submitting proposals for:
- exclusion and minimization of existing safety regulatory requirements;
- the use of new technologies and equipment, remote control and unmanned technologies to ensure the integrated safety of offshore oil and gas facilities;
Consideration and maintenance of the thesis stated at the RISK-2019 Conference:
- on separate regulation of offshore oil and gas activities;
- on the appointment of a one body to oversee the integrated safety of offshore oil and gas facilities;
- on the creation of a special state examination of offshore oil and gas projects.
