Dear readers, again very welcome to my PhD thesis defence. The time is still 10:15 on 15 June in the lecture hall V:B, V-huset, John Ericssons väg 1, Lund. Faculty opponent will be Erik Hollnagel and it will surely be a couple of hours of severe sweating. The defence seminar will be followed by a lunch and a one-hour workshop in which you as the audience will get the opportunity to engage in interesting discussions with four prominent professors: Sidney Dekker, Britt-Marie Drottz Sjöberg, Inge Svedung and Kurt Petersen (unfortunately Erik Hollnagel has had to declare that he is not able to attend). The theme of these discussions will be: The research within Risk Management and Systems Safety in 2020; where are we heading?

I would also like to thank the participants at the conference for all your k…
