The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a Vici grant worth 1.5 million euros to Roger Laeven, professor of Quantitative Economics at the University of Amsterdam. The grant will enable him to conduct research into the risks facing society in the 21st century.

Research focus

The most important global risks we currently face are those of a financial, climate or cyber crisis. These risks are characterised by the feedback loops that generate them and are surrounded by pervasive uncertainty. This research will develop innovative concepts, methods and techniques to model and measure these 21st-century risks.
