The ideas for projects come from our Members, and usually crop up during working group meetings or at one of our forums. We always seek approval from our Members for our annual programme of work – without their input, our research projects would not be a success.
Not only do they suggest the topics, but our Members are involved throughout the life of project. They contribute their knowledge, experience and expertise, ensuring that each project delivers what our Members require.
Our 2017 research programme will reflect the changing nature of operational risk as it continues to evolve.
In the second half of 2016 we surveyed our Members on which research projects they would find the most relevant for the coming year. We'll be publishing our 2017 research programme in the new year. In the meantime you can download our research shortlist.
2017-2019 potential research topics
Find out more about our research
The full results of our research are usually only available to project participants. However, because we want to see the advancement of the operational risk as a discipline, we always try to produce summaries and cut-down versions for our non-participating Members and non-members.
We often produce publicly available reports, too. You can find out more about some of these here.
Collaborating with experts
Occasionally, we will work with industry and academic partners where there is an opportunity, and do so through an open selection process. If you are interested in being an ORX research partner then please get in touch.
These are some of the academic papers which we have supported over the years:
- Operational Loss Scaling by Exposure Indicators: Evidence from the ORX Database (7 October 2008)
- Observed Correlations and Dependencies Among Operational Losses in the ORX Consortium Database (27 November 2008)
- Challenges in Measuring Operational Risk from Loss Data (9 September 2009)
