Offering a unique mix of 360° academic and experiential learning, EucA supports the transition of students from University into the job market.

The FERMA Forum is the largest European conference of Risk management and Insurance professionals.  It’s the place to explore risk ecosystems and anticipate what is to come! 

The 2024 Forum, themed: Join The Risk Revolution, invites you to delve into the world of risk management and its evolving landscape. Imagine stepping into a world where everything is changing rapidly – from global laws to technological advancements like artificial intelligence and even shifts in climate patterns. These changes are all part of what we call the risk revolution, a pivotal moment in the field of risk management.


At the forum, we'll explore how these developments are reshaping the profession and why it's crucial to stay ahead of the curve. Join us as we anticipate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in this dynamic era.
