ELSE Workshop

The ELSE project aims to develop a new research-based approach to education in the domain of safety leadership. This transdisciplinary research domain deals with a variety of themes such as safety culture, organizational resilience, high reliability organizations, organizational mindfulness and leadership. In order to multidisciplinary research on organizational safety leadership we organized an international workshop in January 22 - 24, 2020.

 This workshop served a double objective:

  • It helped identify the state-of-the-art knowledge on the topic of safety leadership/leadership for safety, which in turn will help design a training program for managers and students. 
  • It brought together scientists from the different disciplines and the nuclear sector actors. This interdisciplinary and inter-professional network will guarantee the highest relevance of the ELSE training program, which will be based on a continually updated knowledge on safety leadership/leadership for safety.

The ELSE project developed links with the Academy 3, Space, Environment, Risk and Resilience. This Academy provided an additional funding for the organization of the ELSE Scientific Workshop
