The continued development and growing opportunities for commercialization of key enabling technologies (e.g., nanotechnology, synthetic biology, biomaterials) raises fundamental environmental health and safety (EHS) challenges for regulators in various governments.
Even though existing practices for risk assessment and management (RA&M) are applicable to these technologies, their implementation requires information that is difficult to obtain given the limited availability of quantitative data to populate models corresponding to material exposure, hazard, and consequences.
To facilitate regulatory decision making for emerging technology research and innovation and account for corresponding EHS risks, a comprehensive risk governance (RG) framework must account for both qualitative and quantitative data under high uncertainty and local/regional requirements for technology governance.
The SRA Forum will provide discussion of current initiatives that are centered on refining the risk governance of emerging technologies through the integration of traditional risk analytic tools alongside considerations of social and economic concerns.
Such an approach will help account for objective and subjective information alike in order to foster effective governance for emerging technologies with uncertain and potentially consequential risks.
The Forum will develop summaries of current activities of multiple efforts in the United States, European Union, Asia, Latin America, and elsewhere, and will indicate opportunities for future meetings and research.

The INTERCO-SSH project sets out to assess the state of the Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) in Europe and to understand the factors that facilitate or hinder international exchanges. It aims to outline potential future pathways that could promote cooperation across disciplinary and national boundaries.
The project uses the tools of the SSH to study the SSH in their socio-historical context, including their relationship with the political and economic powers. It compares the process of institutionalisation of seven academic disciplines in order to identify the sociological factors that have shaped the “academic unconscious” of scholars. Furthermore, it investigates the transfer of knowledge between countries and disciplines, the geographical mobility of scholars and the circulation of ideas.
INTERCO-SSH project is the first large-scale comparative project of the institutionalisation of seven disciplines in the SSH – Economics, Sociology/Demography, Political Science, Anthropology, Philosopy, Literature, Psychology/Psychoanalysis – in seven countries from 1945 until now (Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Hungary, Argentina). It also analyses exchanges between those countries and other areas: the US, Latin-America (Brazil), and countries in the Global South.
The approach combines three perspectives:
· Constructing patterns of institutionalisation of the SSH
· Mapping the exchanges between countries and disciplines
· Analysing the circulation of paradigms, theories, methods and controversies
