Scenario-oriented assessment of hazardous biological agents
The aim of this study is to elaborate a system that will enable easy, yet sound, communication between persons of different background on the topic of dangers and risks associated with the liberation of potentially hazardous biological agents. This system could then be used to assist planning procedures involving people with different professional backgrounds, e.g. for identifying, discussing and assessing possible gaps in security concepts and associated research needs. As a first step the feasibility of such a system assisting biological hazard assessment is tested, including the analysis of possible limitations.
