SAFE Session on Food Safety at EuroFoodChem Congress - May 2013

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter PDF Print E-mail


The 17th annual EuroFoodChem Congress

took place 7-10 May 2013 in Istanbul Turkey

The SAFE consortium  Special Session on Food Safety was a 2 and 1/2 hour parallel session with a plenary and three short oral presentations.

Thanks to all SAFE members who submitted abstracts !





The EuroFoodChem event is considered fundamental for improving dissemination of food quality and food safety science. SAFE consortium is one among several EU-based organizations and Networks of Excellence that are supporting this event.

The Special Session on Food Safety has invited abstracts on the following topics:

- new hyphenated/comprehensive/advanced analytical approaches useful to assure food safety

- fish contaminants

- toxins from algae/microalgae

- biogenic amines and pseudo-allergic reactions

- heavy metals in foods

- DNA analysis: quality and safety of food stuffs

- environmental contaminants & pesticide residues

- new microbial emerging risks / microbial toxins

Procedure for Abstract Selection:

The Executive Board will select the SAFE Speakers using an on-line procedure and considering both the scientific content and the representative value of the presentation among the “SAFE” themes.

Starting 10th April 2013, the Executive Board will notifly authors if their presentation has been accepted and the complete Program for the SAFE consortium Special Session on Food Safety will be sent to the Scientific Committee of Eurofoodchem. Finally, authors will receive an official confirmation from the Turkish organization.

All accepted speakers must register for the Congress: the SAFE Executive Board is now discussing a possible fee reduction with the EuroFoodChem Organizing Committee. Authors will be kept informed.

SAFE members are strongly encouraged to participate in this event. It will be extremely useful for disseminating our European Association of Food Safety, SAFE consortium worldwide. Also, considering that many SAFE members are probably already "regular" participants at the Congress, it is not a large task.

SAFE is growing both from the scientific and public point of views: all the Members are called on to participate in this strategic action useful for our EU Network as well as for each single SAFE Member Institution.

More information on the Congress, including registration fees and forms, programme and speakers, travel and accommodation can be found here. The SAFE Special Session on Food Safety is scheduled for Wed 8 May from 14 to 16h30.


The Special Session on Food Safety is organized by SAFE member DFB (Drug & Food Biotechnology Center).
