Marie Røyksund at Proactima’s Stavanger office defended Wednesday this week for the degree of philosophiae doctor (PhD) at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Stavanger.
The thesis is about how the authorities understand and use new risk research knowledge when they develop regulations and supervisory practices. The focus has been the new definition of risk in the petroleum regulations.
– I find it exciting how we understand risk, both in theory and in practice, says Marie after the public defense. Although the work has been aimed at the petroleum sector, this topic is equally relevant to other industries.
Through the work on the doctoral thesis, Marie has acquired solid knowledge of the risk subject and the Norwegian regulations. This competence has a direct impact on Marie’s work in Proactima.
Six of Proactima’s nearly 60 employees have a doctorate.
We congratulate Marie!
