Happiness is a Good Risk Assessment


September 21, 2015

(there will be pizza!)
HHH Room 170

Please join us for our first STEP-FAR seminar of the semester with Professor Peter Calow. 

This presentation will explore the connection between risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis as an important basis for managing risks.The context will be chemical legislation in Europe (that is up and running) and TSCA in the US (that is under revision) but the aim will be to establish broader principles for the better use of science advice in public policy. An important conclusion will be the need for improving the relevance of what we do through more effective interaction with stakeholders.
