    Goals / Remit

    The European Regulation and Innovation Forum is an expert-led and not-for-profit Think Tank with the aim of promoting high quality risk assessment and risk management decisions by the EU institutions, and raising the awareness of risk management issues at EU-level.


    In order to achieve this, the Forum applies the expertise of a well-established network of experts to ‘horizontal’, cross-sectoral issues. In particular, it addresses regulatory decision-making structures, tools and processes, as well as the risks and benefits of new and emerging technologies, of climate change, and of lifestyle choices.

    Main EU files targeted

    The European Regulation and Innovation Forum has a number of initiatives currently ongoing including:

    - Events and the drafting of policy papers on the role of science in regulatory decision-making.
    - The articulation and promotion of good practices in strengthening Better Regulation processes.
    -- Events and the drafting of policy papers on the establishment of a Law on Administrative Procedures in the EU to enhance the transparency of the regulatory process at EU level.
    - The promotion of the 'Innovation Principle' through events an policy notes to ensure that the EU maintains a regulatory environment conducive to innovation and growth.
