Uncertainty is pervasive and plays a major role in decision-making. Whether agents pursuing individual goals, or policymakers pursuing social objectives, decision-makers rarely know what the relevant states of the world are.

To celebrate the launch of iRisk, its new research center, IÉSEG School of Management will organize an inspiring conference on the theme: “Making decisions in an uncertain world ”.

The inspiring conference will be organized as a high-level panel discussion with four leading experts from the industry, policymaking, and academic community and will promote dialogs between theory and practice.

The inspiring conference is part of a scientific workshop starting on July 7th already. More information on the preceding workshop for academic is available here
