31st European Safety and Reliability Conference | 19-23 September 2021, Angers, France

Welcome to ESREL 2021

The annual European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL) is an international conference under the auspices of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA).

The 31st European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL 2021) will be held in Angers, France on 19 - 23 September 2021.

For more than 30 years now, ESREL has been one of the key annual events for meetings and knowledge exchange in order to innovate for a better control of risks and optimization of the performance of socio-technological systems. It is a real place of conviviality for our community of safety and reliability specialists, safety and reliability in their broadest senses. In Angers, we want to continue in this tradition without, of course, forgetting the quality and scientific relevance and the innovative nature of your proposals. The richness of the event will therefore come from you.

I am not going to remind you of the interests of our activities in all industrial sectors but, if tradition is respected concerning the chairman's word, I will relate it to my feeling of the acceleration of the maturation and transfer processes of the research results to their applications which are drastically shortened. In other words, we are witnessing a massive and rapid industrialization of theoretical and fundamental knowledge, revolutionizing the traditional roles and relationships between industrial practitioners and academic researchers, the former no longer necessarily being the prescribers of needs and the latter their model developers.

ESREL 2021 could thus be the time and place for exchanges around the theme "Guaranteeing in an accelerating world ".
