Risk Analysis and Management for Companies

The research group is one of the first contact points in Europe for risk analysis and management for the assessment of climate-related economic risks at a regional level. We use defined (geographically linked), quantitative and economic pieces of information to perform consistent analyses and develop models, interpret the results and recommend a course of action. In this way, we provide additional benefits to our customers in the following areas: risk analysis with geographically referenced information to identify specific economic risks with the highest possible spatial resolution, precise quantification and risk modeling for company risk management, e.g., using weather-based sales forecasts (WEDDA).

This example shows how precisely the WEDDA forecasts reflected the actual number of swimming pool admissions.
