Acronyms are those short forms made up of the initial letters of a word or phrase. Think of RIMS, ecoDA, ERM, BI and PD. Sometimes it’s easy to understand what they stand for, but sometimes it’s not. FERMA board member Helle Friberg has, therefore, launched the idea of creating a library of acronyms on the FERMA website. She hopes to announce it on the opening day of the Forum.

Its purpose is to provide FERMA members easy access to information about what acronyms in risk and insurance management stand for and mean.

The Library of Acronyms will be placed under the Risk Management section on the FERMA website. It will be searchable by A-Z or by category. To start, there will be three categories of acronym:

  • European affairs
  • Organisations and institutes
  • Risk management associations
