About The Network
The Lighthill Risk Network, now incorporating the Insurance Intellectual Capital Initiative, IICI, is an all-encompassing and inclusive organisation with the specific aim of facilitating and enhancing knowledge transfer into business from academic, government and commercial experts at the forefront of risk-related research.

It is a cost effective not-for-profit organisation that is funded by industry and is managed by a core team of professionals from the (re)insurance, industry. By utilising the expertise from each sector, the Lighthill Risk Network is in a unique position of being able to link its extensive academic knowledge to the research needs of industry.

By promoting personal contacts, the network provides the business community with a gateway into the latest knowledge and understanding of risk, while at the same time presenting the scientific community with opportunities to interact with industry. Targeting the latest developments in key areas of risk, and promoting the translation of knowledge between stakeholder communities, the Lighthill Risk Network exists to focus and facilitate business’ response to risk management.

The Network aims to facilitate innovation and thus success in science, in the financial services industry and in society as a whole by creating a dynamic network of contacts linking research to risk bearers and risk managers worldwide.
