Reaching the high-level goals of Horizon 2020 and the overall EU policies for the next decades will depend on the success of new enabler technologies such as those needed for the new energy policies, climate adaptation and future manufacturing. This innovation promoted and supported by the EU will succeed only if the benefits are clearly visible and the risks are regarded as acceptable by society. These two conditions, however, will largely depend on the capability of public and private institutions to identify and address stakeholder and public expectations and respond to their concerns. Adequate and sufficient governance frameworks as well as methods and tools must be in place for building trust and confidence to show that the new technologies are "well under control". This interest is equally shared by public institutions, industry and the general public.
E2R2 should serve policy makers and industry as a scientifically robust and independent mechanism for the proper assessment of emerging risks. The European Emerging Risk Radar will be a showcase for (1) targeted innovation, taking the results of an FP7 project to central operational use and (2) Public Private Partnership within Horizon 2020. E2R2 will be using the results from the iNTeg-Risk project (iNTeg-Risk - Early Recognition, Monitoring and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology related Risks, www.integrisk.eu-vri.eu ) and its baseline and develop a modern, web-based "system-of-systems", processing inputs from different sources (e.g. scientific data, data from social media, expert opinions, etc.) and delivering user tailored outputs. These outputs contain
· a customizable visualization of Emerging Risks in a "radar-like" view
· a customizable visualization of relationships among Emerging Risks in GIS/conceptional maps
· the possibility to validate the risks and compare "own views" with the views of others
· the possibility of identification and analysis (fore-casting) of trends
· the possibility to drill-down on simple prints
· the possibility to create reports from "2-pagers" to "topical reports" on specific topics
