This project is looking to identify the type and form of policy evidence required by policy makers to operationalize benefit-risk approaches to technology innovation. The project’s objectives are to:

1. Map current gaps in existing approaches to developing scientific evidence upon which to base concrete and actionable policy outcomes.

2. Examine emerging evidence requirements (and barriers to policy translation of this evidence) associated with benefit assessment.

3. Stipulate requirements in terms of an evidence base for factoring in socio-economic assessments to policy.

Timeline: February 2014 > February 2015
