REconciling sCience, Innovation and Precaution through the Engagement of Stakeholders

Project description

How to promote innovation without causing harm to human health and the environment

Decision makers adopt precautionary measures when scientific evidence about an environmental, human or animal health hazard is uncertain. These measures are based on the precautionary principle which has been recognised as a general principle in EU regulations and directives. Critics, however, see it as an obstacle to scientific progress. With this in mind, the EU-funded RECIPES project will analyse how the precautionary principle is applied in the EU and improve its future application with recourse to participatory methods. It will find ways to reconcile innovation and precaution to foster social awareness and responsibility in research and innovation. The project will build effective cooperation between science and society and link scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility.
