Ten companies have agreed partnerships with AIRMIC, which will enable it to expand its activities in research, product development, training and representation, including assistance for those involved

Executive director David Gamble says that AIRMIC will be looking to sponsor research projects which will be able to offer practical benefits to risk managers in comparatively short periods.

In another sort of partnership, AIRMIC, ALARM and the Institute of Risk Management, have agreed to create a joint network which will be able to speak on risk issues that go beyond the particular interests of each association.
