"Safety and Reliability" is one of the four strategic Technology Themes of VTT. In this theme, technologies, system models, and measurement, modelling and estimation methods are developed for the Finnish industry's needs. The results are applied to the development of safety and the life-cycle management of socio-technical systems. Under the theme, the know-how encompasses the fields of safety engineering, risk management, system engineering, machine diagnostics and monitoring, psychology, microbiology, and management of safety and dependability knowledge. The research in the theme will be focused on methods for life-cycle management Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) and safety new technologies and operating principles. The evaluation of the Technology Themes was carried out in 2004. For this, each project developed a status report describing the research carried out and results achieved. This report compiles the reports developed for the evaluation in the projects of the Safety and Reliability - Technology Theme.
