ISR is committed to development and innovation through research in areas of risk control, safety management and emergency/crisis management .

We support organisations by providing expert research capacity in the areas of risk management, security management, emergency/crisis management and business continuity management. With our research, we aim to further develop the field of risk and emergency management.  Different types of research are carried out for this purpose. They vary from (international) benchmarking to policy studies. A combination of an advanced network of researchers, desk research facilities and qualitative reviews of practice are used in order to get the best results. We deliver fast results and findings with clear conclusions and practical recommendations. Your organisation will be supported in the gathering of further knowledge of safety concerns that are relevant to you. Moreover, we contribute to Public Private Partnership initiatives in the areas of research and development.
