Core competencies

Since 2001, members of the Aston Centre for Research Into Safety and Security (The Aston CRISIS
Centre)
at Aston Business School have been researching and consulting to safety and security related
organizations. Our range of projects have had widespread impact on policy and practice including: the
writing of new law, informing high-level policy advisors, working with a wide range of governments
on
evacuation preparedness, training groups of international emergency managers, transferring research
findings to international governments, running a UK seminar network on safety and security. Given
the
heightened focus on safety and security (in its broadest sense), the Aston CRISIS Centre emerged
from a
need in government and private organisations for high quality support in preparing their operations
and
their people for new global challenges. The Aston CRISIS Centre has grown in staff, projects and
ambition and continues to work with the world’s governments, bringing policy transformations
through
evidence-based research. We have had projects that are funded by governments, the European
Commission (Directorate-General: Freedom, Security and Justice) as well as, in the UK; Economic and
Social Research Council; Office of the Deputy Prime Minister; Communities and Local Government;
Department for Transport, Security and Contingencies Directorate; Health and Safety Executive; HM
Nuclear Installations Inspectorate; global and local, public and private organisations.
