FRAMily Meetings

the FUNCTIONAL RESONANCE

  ANALYSIS METHOD


Extending the capabilities of the FMV


There is an increasing interest in utilising the FRAM approach for the analysis of what exactly is going on in complex sociotechnical systems in practical high hazard environments. There are, for example, a number of ongoing projects at the moment in aviation, self-driving vehicles and, of course, on the challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic for healthcare responses. But as well as these practical applications there is an increasing interest from the academic community, in extending and developing further, the underpinning concepts, as shown in the recent review (below)



FRAMily meetings/workshops

There have been a number of workshops about the FRAM. These have been held annually, usually in the spring or early summer. The meetings have been held in the following places:


2007 – Sophia Antipolis (France)

2008 – Sophia Antipolis (France)

2009 – Sophia Antipolis (France)

2010 – Sophia Antipolis (France)

2011 – Sophia Antipolis (France)

2012 – Middelfart (Denmark)

2013 – Munich (Germany)

2014 – Gothenburg (Sweden)

2015 – Olden (Switzerland)

2016 – Lisbon (Portugal)

2017 – Rome (Italy)

2018 – Cardiff (Wales)

2019 - Malaga (Spain)

In 2020 the meeting will be held in Kyoto (Japan)

The meetings have always been informal. This has made the meetings themselves very interesting but has also meant that there has been no systematic documentation from them, other than a compilation of presentation materials that were sent to the participants afterwards.

Basic information about previous workshops can be found by selecting a workshop year on the left.
