Frederic Bouder is leading research at UiS on 1- Teaching kids and adolescents about risk (2018-)2- He is directing research on genetic risk communication, as part of the multi-partner project MindTheRisk supported by the Swedish Social Science Foundation (2015-2019).3-  He is engaged in a productive research collaboration with senior colleagues at the King?s Centre for Risk Management, King?s College London. This particular effort focuses on the issue of regulatory transparency and benefit/risk communication. 4- In 2012 he joined the Vienna Vaccine Safety Initiative (ViVi) to translate his expertise into actionable advice to the vaccine community in developed as well as developing nations. 


Prof. Bouder is a recognised expert in risk policy analysis and has deployed this expertise to develop and maintain international policy networks. In 2017 he completed a senior fellowship programme at the Institute for Advance Sustainability Studies (IASS) where he compared current transatlantic trends in risk policy, including vaccine safety.Frederic Bouder has made tangible impacts on policy, in particular several of his recommendations have been endorsed and implemented by European regulators and policymakers. In 2009 he was appointed National Expert to the European Medicines Agency where he carried an evaluation of specific safety cases including risk communication of HPV products. In 2012 he was appointed Scientific Advisor to the network of pharmaceutical National Competent Authorities across Europe as part of the EU project on Strengthening Collaboration for Operating Pharmacovigilance in Europe (SCOPE) Joint Action. He has also carried research with non-medical regulators including the UK Sustainable development Commission, the UK Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (IenM) and the European Patent Office (EPO).  In addition, many medical and non-medical regulators across Europe and in North America have invited Prof. Bouder to provide policy advice and state-of-the-art training on Risk Analysis.Frederic Bouder?s contribution to the field of risk analysis also includes fourteen years of service to the Society of Risk Analysis, serving as specialty group chair, councillor, and now President-elect of the Society for Risk Analysis Europe.
