Goals / Remit
The European Risk Forum is an expert-led and not-for-profit Think Tank with the aim of promoting high quality risk assessment and risk management decisions by the EU institutions, and raising the awareness of risk management issues at EU-level.
In order to achieve this, the Forum applies the expertise of a well-established network of experts to ‘horizontal’, cross-sectoral issues. In particular, it addresses regulatory decision-making structures, tools and processes, as well as the risks and benefits of new and emerging technologies, of climate change, and of lifestyle choices.
The European Risk Forum has a number of initiatives currently ongoing including: - Events and the drafting of policy papers on Regulatory Cooperation under the TTIP Trade Agreement. -- Events and the drafting of policy papers on the establishment of a Law on Administrative Procedures in the EU to enhance the transparency of the regulatory process at EU level. - The promotion of the 'Innovation Principle' through events an policy notes to ensure that the EU maintains a regulatory environment conducive to innovation and growth.
