Roundtable: SRA Policy Forum and SRA Nano Safety Cluster Efforts

Room: Salon D   10:30 am–12:00 pm

Chair(s): Igor Linkov

Sponsored by Emerging Nanoscale Materials Specialty Group

On March 2017, the Society for Risk Analysis hosted a Policy Forum entitled “Risk Governance for Key Enabling Technologies.” The Policy Forum sought to foster discussion of current initiatives that are centered on refining the risk governance of emerging technologies through the integration of traditional risk analytic tools alongside considerations of social and economic concerns. Further, the Forum drove discussion on various emerging technology options and process, including nanotechnology, industrial and medical biotechnology, synthetic biology, advanced materials, and advanced manufacturing technologies. This roundtable will reflect discussion raised from the Policy Forum related to emerging technologies, and will also include insight from recent efforts from the Society for Risk Analysis’ Nano Safety Cluster on the subject of decision tools to inform nanomaterial governance.
