The RISK Research Center of the Universität der Bundeswehr München pursues the objective of investigating the connection between risk, infrastructure, security and conflict. To this end, it brings together skills and knowledge from the social, natural and engineering sciences and examines different risk and security-related aspects using a multidisciplinary and multi-method approach. The Center focuses on research in the fields of risks and decisions, infrastructure and security, security and freedom as well as conflict and regulation. It examines the "logic" of decision-making in a state of uncertainty as well as the complex interrelations between the concepts of "security" and "freedom", thus making an important contribution to the protection of particularly significant infrastructures.
Supporting the development of junior academics is vital in this context as this creates a platform for interdisciplinary cooperation among and with junior researchers.
