Scientific Uncertainty & Food Risk Regulation
The HolyRisk Project (2009-2014) is a multidisciplinary research project (social sciences and computer sciences). It is a comparative (USA/EU) and empirical study that investigates how food safety policies are influenced by the scientific uncertainty embedded in the risk assessment reports.
A key component of the project is the construction of the HolyRisk database that holds information about various types of relevant documents, including Risk Assessments, Risk Managements and Impact Assessment.
