The European Risk Summit will bring advanced discussions on the advantages of evidence and risk-based rulemaking to Trinity College Dublin this summer, in a two-day event hosted by the Irish Medicines Board (IMB) and supported by King’s College London’s Centre for Risk Management (KCRM) and the Nickel Institute.
Over two days, 11-12 June 2013, debates and discussions will provide food for thought on a variety of risk policy issues, featuring top international risk-based policy experts and academics and chaired by Director of King’s Centre for Risk Management, Professor Ragnar Löfstedt; Mr Pat O’Mahony, Chief Executive of the Irish Medicines Board; and Dr Kevin Bradley, President of the Nickel Institute.
The Summit will be divided into four panels, each dealing with a particular aspect of risk, including the promotion of science-based regulation in Europe and risk-based policy-making versus the precautionary principle.
The event will feature a variety of keynote speakers, including member of the European Parliament’s Agriculture and Rural Development Committee, MEP Julie Girling; Deputy Director General for the Environmental Protection Agency in Ireland, Dara Lynott; and Chief Executive of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, Professor Alan Reilly, amongst many others.
