Risk Governance Session - Jun 24, 2021
Martin Himly, Sabine Hofer and Nobert Hofstaetter (University of Salzburg), as well as Dmitri Ciornii (BAM) and Daan Schuurbiers (DPF) built this session on the question “Risk assessment with social dimension: how does risk governance differ from risk assessment or management?” Starting with introducing the process of risk governance, it was discussed how data support decision-making, what data are needed, and what researchers can do in order to provide such data. This also covered FAIR databases, such as the NanoCommons Knowledge Base, and quality assurance, defined by the Knowledge Readiness Level (KaRL). Next to that, different stakeholder views and how socioeconomic aspects can be included into the risk governance process to warrant inclusiveness for different values into the risk/benefit estimation were discussed.
