The PRINCEPS Risk Intelligence Institute (PRII) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing the risk intelligence industry standards in Central & Eastern Europe.
PRII aims to contribute to establishing best practices in the field by means of educational programs and certificates for students, young professionals, and emerging leaders, as well as through research and published content focusing on the fields of political risk and open-source intelligence.
PRII aspires to create a regional centre of excellence in risk intelligence that connects experts, executives, and young professionals. It likewise aims to establish a shared network, educational opportunities, and modern tools to navigate any current risk intelligence challenges.
PRII is committed to educating and training students, young professionals, and emerging leaders in risk intelligence. It also serves seasoned executives and key stakeholders who need actionable insights in order to be able to make informed decisions in their daily business operations and critical strategic choices.
PRII’s education initiatives and programs include multi-week seminars, one-off workshops, and a semester-long risk intelligence course for students at Charles University. We leverage our experience and expertise from the risk intelligence industry to ensure that all the programs utilise real and practical examples and have been carefully designed to provide the participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to navigate any current Risk Intelligence challenges.
