The European Risk Policy Institute was founded by the Australian Risk Policy Institute https://www.arpi.org.au as part of the Global Risk Policy Netwok and is lead by Ivan Savov, Fellow of ARPI since 2009. The Network combines the collective expertise of hundreds of prominent global risk experts. ERPI has members in all EU countries and focuses on global and regional risk issues advising governments and multinationals on preventing and managing risks and crises.
