Envisioning the expertise of the future

BREAK-OUT SESSION

Thursday 20 September 2018 / 13:45 - 17:30

Science is advancing faster than ever, future scientific needs are not always predictable and society is playing a greater role in the production of scientific evidence.

Complex challenges call for multiple responses. Regulatory agencies and scientific organisations need to take these scientific and social advances into account to ensure they can continue to protect humans, animals and the environment.

The session will look at how regulatory agencies can respond to future developments and discuss the key ingredients for a successful recipe for the future such as the importance of working across disciplines, the added value of international cooperation, and working with society. This will provide us with relevant and appropriate methodologies and expertise for the future.
