Description: iNTeg-Risk (Early Recognition, Monitoring, and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks) is a project that responds to the call of offer from the FP7 (Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development) in the area of “Nano-sciences, Nano-technologies, Materials and new Production Technologies”. iNTeg-Risk coordinates research and development sub-projects related to new materials and technologies for establishing a common EU approach to face the challenge of emerging risks within the next 15 years.The main goal of iNTeg-Risk – Project is to establish a holistic approach for facing the challenge of emerging risks, due to new materials and technologies, within the next 15 years.
R-Tech Specific Role: R-Tech is actively involved and plays an important role in the technical development of tools / applications for improving early recognition and monitoring of emerging risks (e.g. RiskEars, Risk Atlas, etc.). R-Tech has main tasks attributed to WP1.6: Integration on the level of ERRAs, WP2.4: KPI : Agreed Method on how to build iNTeg-Risk KPIs, WP3.4: I3: Integrative ERRA #3: Industrial zone of Pančevo-South, WP3.5: Convert the ERRAs in a network of virtual reference facilities (ENISFER), WP3.7: Interactions with One-stop-shop and the ERMF, WP4.4: Decision Support System for emerging risks based on KPIs (DSS-KPI), WP4.9: Workshop Agreements CEN, WP4.10: iNTeg-Risk Training, Technology Transfer, Education & Qualification in the area of Emerging Risks, WP5.2: Creation of the common IT infrastructure for project management, collaborative tools, reporting, web-based conferences, Quality Management, and WP5.4: Ensuring sustainability of iNTeg-Risk results and commercial exploitation after the project.

Main achievements as in May 2011
 
 

In spring 2011 the project entered the second half of its planned duration. This has been marked by the following main results achieved:

·          All 17 ERRAs accomplished and consolidation of their results started

·          More than 160 so-called ERIs (Emerging Risks Issues, risk scenarios) within ERRAs have been identified and described

·          More than 900 early warnings (iNTeg-Risk "notions") acquired and partly processed

·          More than 200 iNTeg-Risk specific KPIs (key performance indicators) identified and described

·          Integration works on ERRAs started or partly accomplished (e.g. Delphi workshops)

·          iNTeg-Risk Paradigm defined and final report submitted

·          iNTeg-Risk Framework defined and the final report drafted

·          iNTeg-Risk system for acquisition and monitoring of early warnings RiskEars with the above mentioned approx. 900 notions, ERIs and ERRAs developed and four main ways of entering notions opened: from the company employees, from the project partners, from public and from the web-based searches

·          iNTeg-Risk KPI Library with the above 200+ iNTeg-Risk KPIs and other approx. 2,000 relevant KPIs stored

·          The development of iNTeg-Risk Safetypedia started

·          iNTeg-Risk system for mapping of emerging and other risks (RiskAtlas) with over 200 layers of data related to hazards and vulnerabilities – e.g. earthquakes, hazardous materials, industrial plants (refineries, power plants, nuclear power plants), nature protection areas, carbon caption and sequestration plants, etc.; the emerging risks can be "recognized" by calculating the risk indicators for hazard-vulnerability pair from the points in the respective layers

·          Several innovative methods have been used for emerging risk identification and the tools for their application developed in the project: agent-based methods (e.g. for terahertz technology), intelligent fuzzy clustering and self-organizing networks (e.g. for emerging risk notions), ...

 

iNTegRisk1StopShop
One of the key accomplishments in the iNTeg-Risk project is the One-Stop-Shop, which is developed within the work of SP 4.
