The Willis Research Network (WRN), the academic research network managed by Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW), the leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, is celebrating 10 years helping develop research and solutions to meet the challenges of understanding risk and resilience.

Since inception, the WRN has sponsored dozens of Research Fellows worldwide and released hundreds of peer reviewed articles and publications.  The Network pioneered award winning research which has helped the industry and wider professions better engage  a wide range of risk themes and research capabilities including extreme tornados, Asia-Pacific tsunami, global climate models,  flood mapping, economic risk scenarios and casualty analytics.  Over the decade the WRN has partnered in major industry initiatives including the Global Earthquake Model, OASIS and Engineering for Climate Extremes and served on public science agencies, Academy working groups and research councils.

To mark the WRN’s 10th year anniversary, WRN have put together a brochure highlighting some of the research projects including our developed European Hail model by Heinz Jürgen Punge.
