2011 Risk Science Symposium Day 1
2011 Risk Science Symposium
September 20-21 2011

In today’s increasingly complex and interconnected world, the path between innovation and solution is being confounded by fear of new health risks and uncertainty over potential outcomes. Yet this is happening at a time when we are more dependent than ever on innovation-driven solutions to global health challenges.

If science and technology are to continue to drive social development and economic growth, we need to re-examine and re-think the relationship between risk, uncertainty and innovation.

This symposium brought together leading thinkers from industry, government, academia, the media and other non-governmental sectors to explore new ideas on integrative approaches to health risks, uncertainty and innovation, as we look to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges in an increasingly fragile world.
