We organised a panel on 'Extreme Risks – Challenges for evidence and policy' at the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) annual conference. You can listen to the panel discussion on the CSaP website here.
The panel explored extreme events and the policy challenges around preparedness and response to such events, using the Salisbury Novichok incident as a case study. The panel was chaired by Rumtin Sepasspour, Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. Panellists included Dr Luke Kemp, Centre for the Study of Existential Risk; Theresa, Go Science; Dr Dudley Hewlett, Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory; and Georgina Collins, Defra.
