The Wharton Risk Center actively engages with a wide range of partners interested in disaster risk management and decision-making, including scholars at academic institutions around the world, public-sector decision-makers, NGOs, and private sector firms.
The generous support of our corporate sponsors makes the work of the Risk Center possible. Sponsors may choose to support the overall operations of the Risk Center or specifically contribute to one of our Research Labs or our Policy Incubator.
Our research sponsors provide both financial support and collaborate with us on research studies.
The Wharton Risk Center actively partners with other research centers across the University of Pennsylvania to lead interdisciplinary initiatives and events. We wish to especially acknowledge the following centers for their collaborations:
The Risk Center works with public sector partners on risk and resilience public policy challenges.
