Uncertainty Quantification Foundation Mission

Our mission is to broaden the study and application of uncertainty quantification, and support the development and dissemination of advanced tools, technologies, and methodologies for UQ. Become a member of UQF and help us advance predictive science and deliver on our mission.

Uncertainty Quantification Foundation Membership

We are scientists, engineers, mathematicians, data scientists, and statisticians working to push forward the field of uncertainty quantification, provide a bridge between the work of researchers and organizations that can drive innovation across the public and private sectors, and advance fundamental science that can be used to develop advanced tools and technologies to foster innovation for the broader public benefit.

What does it mean to be a member of the UQ Foundation?

Being part of the Uncertainty Quantification Foundations means that you are part of a community of thinkers and professionals that understand the increasing practical importance of uncertainty quantification to the natural sciences and engineering, especially as statistical reasoning has become an essential component of modern scientific thinking. The UQ Foundation is an open membership organization, so anyone who uses, is a practitioner or researcher, or understands the importance of uncertainty quantification, or is just interested in UQ can join.

For those who wish to do more, we have classes of membership for those who contribute time, work, and money to the foundation.
