Summary iNTeg-Risk (Early Recognition, Monitoring, and Integrated Management of Emerging, New Technology Related Risks) is a large scale integrating project aimed at improving the management of emerging risks related to “new technologies” in European Industry. A research consortium of 64 different institutions is united in order to establish a common EU approach to face the challenge of emerging risks from new technologies such as nanotechnology, H2 technology, CO2 underground storage and new materials. This will be achieved by building new management paradigm for emerging risks as a set of principles supported by a common language, agreed tools & methods and Key Performance Indicators, all integrated into a single framework. iNTeg-Risk purpose is to coordinate research and development sub-projects for improving the management of Emerging Risks related to new materials and technologies that will reduce time to-market for the EU lead market  technologies and promote safety, security, environmental friendliness and social responsibility as a trademark of the advanced EU technologies. The project will improve early recognition and monitoring of emerging risks, seek to reduce accidents caused by them and decrease reaction times if major accidents involving emerging risks happen. Seventeen individual applications are foreseen in order to include different types of new technologies in respective number of case studies.
