Emerging risks are typically risks for which only a limited amount of data is available. As a consequence, these risks are often not foreseen or simply neglected during risk assessments. In major capital projects in industry such an oversight might have serious implications on the project itself or on the safety of the future operators and maintenance staff at the new installation. VTT is therefore focused on creating new risk assessment methods and tools that can be integrated with those currently in use.
