Quantitative Risk Modeling
Interdisciplinary Instructional Training
6th – 8th February, 2017: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology
Safe Water for Food (SaWaFo) Project
Participant of Quantitative Risk Modeling Interdisciplinary Instructional Training will learn the underlying concepts how to use scientific data to perform risk modeling and other quantitative modeling techniques. The Instructional Training is design for graduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral fellows and early –career professionals/Scientist. Participants will gain hands-on experience with host of quantitative risk modeling software options and other tools while they participate in realistic case studies.
- Participate in discussion forum and instructional lectures
- Engage in specific hands on exercises
We assume no prior knowledge in quantitative modeling experience on the part of participants; therefore we will include tutorial models and applications for quantitative risk modeling.
No registration fee is required. However, only limited seats are available.
Accepting applications until January 31st, 2017, acceptance notification will be released by February 2nd, 2017
Motivation (Max: 150 words)
