The main objective of the Research Group Risk(s), Ecologies, Health is to promote an integrated approach to risks and threats and their impacts on the ecosystem and human and non-human well-being, building a dialogue with socially robust approaches and interventions designed from responsible research and innovation tools and procedures, involving methodologies and analytical frameworks for the prediction, mitigation and adequate recovery from risks. This integrated approach incorporates climate change, health transformations and emergencies, (bio)surveillance and social control as the main factors, proposing sustainable, ecological and equity-based alternatives for production and consumption, healthcare and social well-being, and relying on collaborative and participatory methodologies.

This research group is guided by three analytical dimensions: territory, ethics and participation. It is structured around six research topics.
