HESI RISK ASSESSMENT SUMMIT 2020
The HESI RISK21 Committee is pleased to invite you to the first Risk Assessment Summit, which will be held on February 18-19,2020, in Washington, DC!
The Summit will convene a broad group of stakeholders to discuss risk assessment approaches that ascribe to the following general principles:
- Problem formulation-based
- Risk-based at each step
- Fit for purpose
- Utilization of existing information
The Summit will be structured around specific case examples presented by government, industry, academic, and NGO stakeholders, to illustrate various real-world applications of these principles in the context of human health and ecological risk assessment (e.g., prioritization, categorization, study design, new product development, risk management and communication, etc.). There will also be a poster session on the evening of February 18th to allow a broader group of attendees to share their case studies.
We would like this meeting to provide a forum to discuss risk assessment challenges, foster collaboration, and leverage expertise to address gaps and needs, and we hope you will join us to learn about lessons and insights in the risk assessment space, and also share your experience with this community of practice.
