How can we ensure that innovative products and solutions are fostered and encouraged when their impacts on human health and the environment are not fully known? The Precautionary Principle (PP) enables authorities to take precautionary measures by means of pre-damage control when scientifically plausible but uncertain that a new technology or product may cause harm.
Is the Precautionary Principle really an obstacle to innovation? This conference will provide a platform to discuss existing challenges to the evidence-based implementation of the PP from an interdisciplinary perspective.

In spring 2019, the RECIPES project hosted citizen meetings in several countries. Citizens who took part in the meetings had the chance to reflect on issues related to precaution and innovation in relation to research and to provide their ideas and opinions.
