Late lessons from early warnings

Societies may be considerably more successful at maximising the net benefits from innovation if they take more account — scientifically, politically and economically — of the rich body of information available from a greater range of diverse sources.

The 'Late Lessons Project' illustrates how damaging and costly the misuse or neglect of the precautionary principle can be, using case studies and a synthesis of the lessons to be learned and applied to maximising innovations whilst minimising harms.
