Course: Assessing Risk to Humans and the Environment

The aim of the course is to give students a grounding in the theory and skills needed to carry out environmental risk assessment for humans and non-human organisms. This will include hands-on training in some of the risk assessment tools and models. In addition to learning the basic theory and strengths of risk assessment and management, students are given insights into the assumptions, uncertainties and limitations of the tools and models.

Topics covered include risk assessment approaches, international regulation and policy, risk communication and perception, and social and ethical aspects of risk management.

The course is open to students of environmental science, ecology and nature management, as well as those from nuclear sciences. Professionals may also attend all or parts of the course, for example to obtain certification in assessment tool training.

There is a limited number of accommodation support grants available for external students.

More details in the course flyer and on the course page.
