Event description

Description

UQR!SK is hosting a 3-day symposium entitled ‘UQR!SK Symposium: New Horizons in Risk Management’ (https://goo.gl/9SqJyZ) for industry practitioners, regulators and academia. This UQ-wide initiative highlights a truly multi-industry and cross-discipline event which aims to showcase leading-edge industry practices and next generation approaches to risk management.

To promote risk-based strategies, the UQR!SK team is calling out for 2-3 minute short videos relevant to the hazardous industries. This could be your research topic, or a specific risk concept currently implemented or potentially applied to the mineral and resources, manufacturing, transport, chemical, commercial or engineering industries. The video can be presented in the most creative manner possible. It can be in a form of a recorded video presentation of yourself with your slide/s, a short animation, or any sort of presentation that you see fit. The more creative, the better. For inquiries, please email Karen Teo (k.teo@uq.edu.au). To learn more about UQ R!SK, check out our website (http://www.chemeng.uq.edu.au/uqrisk).

Here are some rules you should know before registering for The Risk Pitch competition!

Rules

1. The video submitted should be less than 3 minutes long.

2. Scope of the video should include risk-related concepts in process/production/energy industry. For example, ‘risk’ such as business or financial risk are not eligible. If unsure if your idea is eligible or not, please email Karen Teo.

3. Videos submitted should be in .mp4 or .mov formatting.

4. There is no limit on how many videos are submitted, so feel free to submit as many videos as you like! However, videos will be filtered to ensure the quality and scope of videos are standardised and relevant.

6. The videos will be showcased during a 3-day symposium where the symposium-attendees will vote on their favourite videos! You do not have to be present, however, on the last day of the symposium (22nd November 2017), the top 6 will be invited to join us for food and drinks at the end of the day for prize giving.
