AGES Integrative Risk Assessment, Data and Statistics

We develop, collect and document extensive data and knowledge on human, animal, plant, food and nutritional health. Based on these fundamentals, we calculate risk-based sampling plans, develop models and simulations, e.g. on the spread of diseases, compile statistics and reports or prepare evidence-based nutrition recommendations. Most importantly, we use them to assess a wide variety of risks that can affect the health of people in Austria. With our risk assessments, we support the authorities in risk management in the areas of health, food and veterinary affairs.
