Risk Management And Decision Support

Assess, minimize and manage risks

The Risk Management And Decision Support department addresses methods and measures for risk preparation and mitigation, response in crisis situations, and recovery from emergencies. Our prime focus is the development of integrated risk management systems, specifically the support of decision-making by different tools and formal methods. The scope of decisions includes the planning and coordination of resources for fire brigades, the design of novel pieces of equipment for relief services, or the assessment of alternatives in drafting financial legislation.


Process Mining – From Insights to Action

The group aims to bridge the aforementioned gap by enhancing industry adoption of state-of-the-art process and data science research. We do so in a variety of ways, ranging from data analysis and in-company training to contributing to cutting-edge research.


Impact assessment of financial legislation (MIKMOD)

On behalf of German Federal ministries we develop and operate a number of micro simulation models that use, among others, census data to forecast budgetary and behavioral consequences of changes in German legislation on income taxation, social security and higher education grants.
