The European Virtual Institute for Integrated Risk Management and Alfa-Bird
What does EU-VRi do?

EU-VRi is the coordinator of Alfa-Bird and takes care of the overall management of the project: the technical management with the support of the Steering Committee and administrative/financial co-ordination of the project
Indeed, EU-VRi is a European Grouping with Economic Interest designed to co-ordinate European projects for both industry and for the framework programme of the EC in relation with risk management, industrial safety and environmental protection. Through its founding members, EU-VRi has an extensive experience in the co-ordination of projects, in particular in FP5, FP6 and FP7.

EU-VRi is also reponsible for the economical evaluation of the use of alternative fuels. This economic analysis aims at a cost evaluation together with an evaluation of expected market availability, in order to gain insights into market expectations. To do so, EU-VRi will provide its expertise in Life Cycle Analysis, Life Cycle Costing, Multiple Criteria Decision Making, Decoupling Indicators...
Based on the Economical and Environmental evaluations, EU-VRi (with Airbus Operations SAS) will provide a synthesis in order to conclude the project. We will assemble the elements provided by the syntheses on relevant parameters into a final document, and participate to the ranking of the candidates, and selection of the most promising solutions.
