FoodSafety4EU: towards a closer food safety collaboration
Food safety is a top priority for the European Commission. The main goal is to assure the protection of human health through safe products by the food industry - Europe’s largest manufacturing and employment sector. Therefore, the FoodSafety4EU project will design, develop and launch a multi-stakeholder platform for the future European Food Safety System (FSS).
The Food Safety Systems (FSS) platform aims to bring together citizens, scientists, companies, the European Commission, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and national Food Safety Authorities, to establish a network of FSS actors on a national, European, and international level.
To facilitate this collaboration and ensure responding to potentially fast-changing scenarios, the consortium will thus develop knowledge and digital tools to activate a structured participatory process among these actors.
The FoodSafety4EU platform aims to:
- Support the risk assessment by facilitating access to resources, data, tools and scientific knowledge
- Co-create and align future research programmes and EU agenda
- Enhance public confidence through transparency and access to integrated knowledge
