In April 2023, PRORISK enters its final year. This also means that all our ESRs are now in their final year and working towards finalization of their PhD theses. For that reason, a face-to-face PRORISK Consortium Meeting, combined with a hybrid Stakeholder Workshop, will be held from 2-4 October 2023 at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, with the aims to:

  • Give the floor to all ESRs to present their achievements;
  • Discuss overall achievements towards PRORISK aims of realizing a novel framework for environmental risk assessment (ERA) integrating exposures, mechanistic AOPs, trait based approaches, ecosystem services and risks/socio-economic valuation;
  • Integrate PRORISK achievements into the case studies exploring two ecosystem services - Recreational fishery and Crop production;
  • Discuss with Stakeholders the PRORISK findings and their possible use in future ERA;
  • Use the recommendations of the Stakeholders, together with the findings of the ESRs and the outcomes of the case studies, to start preparing for the final deliverables;
  • Celebrate PRORISK network progress and achievements.

We want to invite all PRORISK ESRs and their supervisors, all partners, Advisory Board Members, and all others involved in PRORISK to join this consortium meeting. We also invite all PRORISK ESRs, beneficiaries, partners and Advisory Board Members to actively contribute to engaging stakeholders to participate.
