Who We Are

risQ is a spinout of Northeastern University's Sustainability and Data Sciences (SDS) Lab. The formation of risQ was motivated by the recognition of longstanding gaps between state-of-the-art climate science and day-to-day practice in the areas of climate change adaptation and infrastructure resilience. Our primary mission is to enable (re)insurance companies to incorporate climate data, at scale, into catastrophe modeling and risk management processes.

risQ works closely with academic leaders, including the SDS Lab, in translating research to practical solutions that yield measurable impacts.
