Since our formula of keynote speakers and workshops was highly appreciated by the attendees of our past conferences, we are continuing on the same path.

Workshop: Normal Chaos: a catalytic framework for theorizing crisis

One of the workshops at our CIP Conference 2017 on 16 June 2017 at University of Lisbon – Faculdade de Psicologia.

In our quest for failure free operations, we try to learn from our mistakes. Therefore we hold inquiries, make diagnoses about how and why an event occurred, and we offer recommendations for improvement. This mostly results in more rules and regulations. However, in a very unstable environment, facing high levels of complexity, people do not hold on to regulations, they rather improvise based on prior experiences and trainings. Continue reading

With the Brandweerman In Nood project (Firefighter Mayday project) we have chosen to train the whole critical mass. The other option, used in the USA, chooses to train a few to be excellent.

There are close to 200 Seveso establishments in Portugal and about 10.000 all over Europe. Are we safe at the same level in each and every country of the European Union? Should we be equally safe whenever we acquire a property, set an industry, working at different places, or just enjoying cities or places as tourists?
