30 October 2018, 13:30-14:30, room STRAUSS 2
Managing the risks of every emerging technology is of key importance for its societal acceptance and consequent development. Significant progress has been achieved on the safety of some technologies (like nanotechnology) including how to transfer this knowledge effectively into regulation. However, bringing more emerging technologies to market level requires transdisciplinary risk governance. The understanding of risk, its management practice and the societal risk perception by all stakeholders will be discussed.
