SAFE Announcements and Events:

  • SAFE Food Safety Workshop: 18 Oct 2017

    "Natural and Microbial Food Contaminants: Riskier Than We Think" is the title of the 2017 SAFE consortium food safety workshop set for WEDNESDAY 18 OCTOBER from 13H15 to 15H30 in BRUSSELS.

    Europeans tend to be concerned about chemical contaminants in food, believing that natural and microbial contaminants are of little risk. Experts state the opposite: food microbes and their toxins can have severe health consequences. This workshop aims at strengthening the understanding of natural and microbial food contamination, debunking the myths around the word 'natural' and bringing much needed attention to this often-overlooked food risk.

    The workshop is free. More information will be available here soon.

Mission

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter PDF Print E-mail

mission2The mission of the SAFE consortium is to stimulate the public debate in Europe on the scientific aspects of food safety, by making available up-to-date knowledge from institutes whose scientific integrity is guaranteed by the unlimited right to publish in the public interest.

Our member organisations work together to develop and promote interdisciplinary research projects and partnerships. This requires a strategic assessment of research trends in food safety and a high degree of interaction with the European Commission and its institutions, European and national food safety authorities and academia.

The products and services of the consortium as a whole can be consulting activities, larger projects and programmes within the Framework Programmes and participations in the ERA Net Scheme and in Technology Platforms. The consortium furthermore organises (series of) seminars and workshops with related publications or position papers on food safety issues.

The geographical ‘operating area’ of the SAFE consortium includes all of the European Union, including the ten new member states that joined the EU in 2004, the Candidate Member States and Countries (Iceland, Norway, Switzerland etc.) which are fully active within the scientific framework programmes of the Union.

SAFE members may log in to see the SAFE consortium Articles of Association. Once logged in, an article will be visilbe in the SAFE consortium tab.
