The centre is based on the collaboration between a number of research groups with parallel teaching and research interests. Today the centre consists of research groups from Department of Safety, Economics and Planning at UiS and from NORCE.

The centre's activities have strong links to the PhD programme in Risk Management and Societal Safety at the University of Stavanger, which is run by SEROS staff.

In addition to the centre's commitment to research, dissemination of ideas, theories and methods through tailor-made teaching programmes, a number of related masters is an important part of the centre's activity portfolio.
