Received this invitation from Andrew Maynard at the University of Michigan. It’s open to all so if I’m sharing it with you.
I wanted to bring to your attention the 2011 Risk Science Symposium. The symposium brings together an exciting set of speakers from multiple sectors who will take the lead in making this a unique forum for exploring emerging challenges and opportunities associated with human health risks and technology innovation. The two day symposium will address how new approaches can support sustainable social and economic progress to potential health risks in today’s technologically complex and interconnected world, how more proactive approaches to addressing emerging rsk issues can be developed, and how innovation might lead to more effective ways of addressing human health risks.
More information on the symposium can be found on the web at http://umriskcenter.org/symp.htm
Look forward to seeing you there!
