TSE Risk & Uncertainty Management Framework - SE0232

This work will provide DEFRA with a framework that will clarify the logical relationships between scientific results and uncertainties that exist in TSE research and the key policy questions facing DEFRA in the matter of TSEs. The framework will allow DEFRA to evaluate research priorities in a co-ordinated and consistent manner and help them make decisions on achieving policy objectives and risk control with a proper knowledge of all remaining uncertainties and their likely impact. It will help DEFRA determine the worth of scientific research items in terms of their value in supporting policy and assess the value for money of different projects. By identifying in a structured way the factors affecting policy, it will help identify future priorities for research and decisions concerning the execution of policy.
