In #microplastinar_10, we are welcoming Alexandra Molitorisová. She will discuss the subject: “Complexity in Benefits vs Risks Assessments in Product Authorisation Procedures”.
The #microplastinar webinar series is co-organized by HHL within the LimnoPlast Project.
The EU-founded research project “LimnoPlast – Microplastics in Europe’s freshwater ecosystems: From sources to solutions” tries to meet the new environmental challenge of microplastic pollution by putting together an international research network consisting of environmental, technical, and social scientists. HHL is one of the few European universities working at this research project, thanks to the team composed by Prof. Dr. Liv Jaeckel, (Chair of “Law of Economic Regulation), Prof. Dr. Tobias Dauth (Chair of “International Management”) and Giorgia Carratta (Research associate and PhD student). The ultimate scope of HHL’s contribution to the project is to identify potential regulatory gaps, design new legal tools, and promote innovative governance strategies to address the emerging issue of microplastics.
Alexandra Molitorisová graduated in Law and Jurisprudence at the Charles University in Prague in 2015. She took additional courses in the Biotechnology in Medicine Bachelor’s Programme at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague (2013-2015). She practiced law first at a paralegal position (2010-2013), later as an associate (2016-2018) in international as well Czech law firms. She was a fellow at the Uppsala University and a research assistant at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena. Project collaborations and research stays have let her to work with Professor Carl Fredrik Bergström (2012), Professor Miguel Maduro (2012), Professor Martin Scheinin (2015), Associate Professor Rónán Condon (from 2017 and 2019) and Professor Ciarán Burke (from 2016 to 2020). She regularly advises the governmental bodies, European institutions, as well as NGOs and other organisations (European Academies’ Science Advisory Council). She has work experience in Ireland, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Slovakia and Germany. At Universität Bayreuth’s Campus Kulmbach she pursues Ph.D. research into the consideration of benefits in authorization procedures of novel technologies, considering the potential of the application of Artificial Intelligence in evidence, proof and fact-finding as well as the doctrinal research. She is also involved in several projects involving the regulation of food innovations”.
This interactive webinar series, wich is co-organized by HHL within the EU-funded LimnoPlast Project, takes a closer look at the wicked problem of plastic pollution and microplastics. Our speakers are experts in plastic pollution and have diverse backgrounds in academia, policy making, civil society and beyond. They will provide unique perspectives on the causes and impacts of the problem and discuss solutions.
