VII International Conference
Regional and Local Projects
- risk management

12-13 June 2017

Department of Strategic and Regional Research of University of Economics in Katowice and the city of Radzionków and Chamber of Commerce are delighted to invite you to a conference "Local and regional projects - risk management", which will take place on June 12-13th, 2017 in Radzionków at the Cultural Center Karolinka.


The conference will focus on the challenges and risks in planning and implementation of development projects at local and regional level. Every action we take has some risk associated with it. The risk in the case of projects is much higher than the risk of the implementation of repetitive tasks such as mass production. Implementation of each project, whose aim is to "create reality (products and services) for which there is no equivalent" by definition is related to the probability of difficult situations, and sometimes even impossible to predict. The consequences of such situations can result in significant deviation of reality from expectations. The risk of deviations can occur during each phase of the project and its source can be varied, ranging from poor work organization, lack of communication with project stakeholders, improper discern their needs to not complying with the assumed output parameters.

The conference will feature four plenary sessions. Discussions and deliberations will create a convenient opportunity to exchange of views and establish contacts with scientists and representatives of the invited institutions involved in the local and regional development.
