Abstract: In response to a request by ECHO.A.3, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) collected a short overview of available scientific data and methods for risk assessment in Europe. The JRC has a long standing research programme in monitoring, modelling and assessing risk for various hazard types, including natural, human and combinations. While several Units are active in this area, it is not always an objective to create or collect data on hazards and risks in a pan-European database. More often, Units work on methodologies or underlying research. However, in support of ECHO’s role in EU Risk Assessment, JRC compiled the available information from various Units into a technical report for ECHO.A.3, which will serve to have baseline data on risks in Europe. If relevant, this may also be the basis for defining specific projects with JRC to elaborate further on European wide risk assessments.
