The AGILE Project
Agnostic risk management for high impact low probability events
Over the last decades, the risk landscape has changed substantially due to new and emerging risks such as climate change, cyber threats, infectious diseases and terrorism. Unpredictable high-risk events described as “High Impact Low Probability” (HILP) events confront governments, businesses and decision-makers with new challenges, including the definition of where responsibilities lie.
To address the existing challenges, the European funded project AGILE (AGnostic risk management for high Impact Low probability Events) will develop a theoretically and empirically grounded definition of HILP events as well as practical tools and methodologies required to improve the societal resilience towards such events. HILPs are described as “events or occurrences that cannot easily be anticipated, arise randomly and unexpectedly, and have immediate effects and significant impacts”.
