Introduction on approaches to deal with uncertainty information within the decision-making process in nuclear emergency
In emergency management the uncertainty information on the current situation, or its predicted evolution, is an intrinsic problem for decision making. CONFIDENCE aims to improve decision making through the development of approaches to deal with uncertainty information, and to communicate them in such a way that decisions can be made in a more robust manner, reflecting the variability and complexity of the real situation and the decision makers’ preferences. Decision making principles are investigated, ranging from formal decision aiding techniques to simulation based approaches. The training seminar includes an introduction on the NERIS European Platform, on the CONFIDENCE Project and on the approaches based on multi-criteria decision analysis and on the agent based model.
Participants will be involved in the panel discussion on how to deal with uncertainties in decision making and on the benefits of stakeholders involvement in the use of uncertainty information.
