Briton takes over Danish assessment institute

British scientist Peter Calow has been appointed as director of Denmark's environmental assessment institute (IMV), replacing "sceptical environmentalist" Bjorn Lomborg, who quit in the summer (EED 23/06/04). Professor Calow is a specialist in ecology and ecological risk assessment and a member of the EU scientific committee on health and environmental risks. He pledged to build on IMV's work examining environmental issues critically and weighing costs against benefits, and to put a high priority on its international profile, particularly in relation to the EU.
