Events are key elements in the HEROIC context and development: first as tools to figure out the current separation of human and environmental risk assessment (RA) procedures, later on to fill the higlighted gaps and needs, involving experts and stakeholders, respectively in the extrapolation process needed to develop an integrated framework for RA and in the co-operation between bodies involved in RA to improve its quality, communication, added value and recognition.

HEROIC experts roundtable on socio-behavioural factors in risk analysis policy making, Brussels, April 7, 2014
As a follow up to the work already performed in different work packages (WP2, WP6) and to the stakeholder consultation on potential socio-behaviour factors influencing the effectiveness of the actual risk analysis procedure

The first HEROIC expert workshop at INERIS in Verneuil en Halatte (North from Paris) on 12-13 April 2012.
HEROIC invites experts from government, NGO’s, academia and the business sector to contribute to a discussion on how existing data and procedures in human and environmental risk assessment could best be used across disciplines in the future.

The first HEROIC Survey was launched
Stakeholders were invited to offer their opinion in an important survey to identify how socio-behavioural factors impact on the effectiveness of the pesticide risk analysis. Their feedback will impact the progress of HEROIC FP7 project.
We wish to thank all the stakeholder participants for being part of this consultation process and for providing important information and useful comments and we will consolidate and evaluate all contributions to prepare for a roundtable discussion with a panel of selected experts. Results will be available soon.

Heroic consultation workshop on expert elicitation in Chatou, France, on October 1-2, 2013
To assess how human and environmental exposure assessments can benefit from each other, the HEROIC Consortium organized an expert workshop to analyse expert decision rules and to identify recommendations for improving the robustness of WoE approaches in decision making processes. 

Heroic expert workshop on extrapolation on Hazard Assessment November 7-8, 2013, at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig, Germany
An expert workshop was organized to explore and evaluate approaches to extrapolate the hazard assessment of chemical substances across environmental and human endpoints as well as within environmental toxicology across different species, aiming at the systematic exploitation of toxicological information between different species and endpoints as well as for mixtures.
