Gestion intégrée des risques émergents : Défis et objectifs du projet européen INTEG-RISK

Abstract : The evolution of technologies and of the society, the transformation of our planet produce new risks at a regular pace. Lack of anticipation of risks has led in the past to disasters or at least to blockage of the development of technologies due to fears that they provoked among the population. Presently, new emerging risks are addressed through the precautionary principle, the application of which is far from being obvious because of a lack of a commonly agreed methodological framework. Emerging risks are characterised by their diversity. They can be caused by new technologies such as nanotechnologies or genetically modified organisms. But emerging risks can also rise from an evolution of the society as risk generator, as it is the case for terrorism, or an evolution of vulnerability, knowledge or even perception of the society with relation to existing sources of hazard which had never been considered as such before. In the first part of the paper, the stakes and needs in terms of emerging risks are presented. The need for an integrated approach is particularly stressed. In a second part, the iNTeg-Risk (Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology Related Risks) project is presented. Its main goals are to develop concrete tools and methods for a better integrated management of emerging risks.
