9:45 - Evidence & Insight

New techniques in big data and sentient mapping are telling us more about how people think and feel about risk, while the development of new engineering technology is being increasingly driven by data, pioneering a new era in data-centric engineering that will transform the safety of physical infrastructure. How can we harness the best evidence and data to focus our efforts to make the world a safer place? Why is evidence so important and what’s the impact of our psychological responses?

11:45 - The Safety Challenges Debate

What is the biggest safety challenge facing the world? Where should we focus our effort to have maximum impact and save lives? From cybersecurity to food safety, the safety of critical infrastructure such as nuclear power stations, and keeping people safe at sea, what are the greatest safety challenges we face and how can we best tackle them?

It is a joint initiative between Lloyd's Register Foundation and Lloyd's Register and run in partnership with Plug and Play Tech Centre, the largest global innovation platform and most active venture capital fund in Silicon Valley. It aims to make the world a safer place by encouraging the growth of the SafetyTech industry and accelerating the adoption of digital technology.


15:00 - Closing the Belief Gap

How do we better understand the public’s perceptions of risk and safety? And how can we use this information to design new interventions that will influence behaviour, change perceptions, improve understanding and ultimately make people safer?

9:00 - Registration & Refreshments


9:30 - The Human Factor

How do human and social factors affect safety? If we are to solve some of the biggest safety challenges, we will need a highly skilled and creative workforce of scientists and engineers. But what influences young people’s choices and participation in STEM subjects? How do we ensure we inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers and tackle barriers such as inequalities in social class, gender and ethnicity? And how can addressing mental health, wellbeing, and happiness help create a safer world?

14:00 - Take A Risk Show

The future is uncertain. Does that thrill you or terrify you? Do you seize opportunities, or feel ‘At Risk’?

Timandra HarknessAfter her “exponentially funny” shows "Your Days Are Numbered" and the “spectacularly entertaining” "Brainsex", Timandra Harkness has turned to risk. Where will it end? That depends on the audience, the choices you make and the chances you take. In fact, there’s a 1 in 2,985,984 chance you’ll have to do the show yourselves. But that’s basically one in three million, so that’s never going to happen, right?


14:30 - Global Perspectives

What safety challenges are faced by different countries and how do different countries and cultures approach safety issues? Experts from around the world share their work and give a range of perspectives on safety.
