    Abstract

    Risks involved in new technologies or arising from novel new configurations of old technologies recurrently result in major accidents in societies. In many cases, a more comprehensive, multidisciplinary risk assessment process that would combine the knowledge of different stakeholders, authorities and citizens could have helped to avoid the sad outcome. This paper presents a new approach to the proactive risk identification process for authorities. It is a collaborative method base on integrated assessment, which was tested in three stakeholder workshops.
