About us


In 1990 RISA GmbH was created out of the working group, “Safety and Reliability of technical facilities”, of the Technical University (TU) of Berlin. As well as probability analysis of safety in power plants, over the past 25 years RISA has also made safety and reliability analysis models for road, rail and air transportation systems. Since 1993 the environmental department of RISA has been involved with the development of environmental information systems, and since the end of 1990's we have been involved with the collection, quality assurance, preparation and conveyance of environmental data within the scope of several European directives.

RISA GmbH today

Through our collaboration in many different research projects in the areas of safety and reliability analysis, and environmental information systems, RISA GmbH comes constantly in contact with the latest developments and technologies, which we use to our advantage in the field. This exposure is also of great assistance in our work for official and industrial clients. It is often the practical solutions from the field that bring new approaches to our research.

The success of our concept of contract research and the execution of vital company contracts is also reflected in our list of reference projects (Safety and Reliability Analyses and also Environmental Information Systems) and our list of scientific contributions. The working groups of RISA GmbH, at the moment, consist of employees from the areas of engineering and information technology, and are supported by freelance experts employed for specific projects.
