Proposal planning for the KBBE 2012 call

A meeting open to all members of the SAFE consortium was held on June 29 in Brussels.

There were two issues on the agenda:

1. The development of a European master and PhD programme in food safety and

2. The planning of proposal preparation for the 2012 KBBE call, Theme 2: Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology.

The meeting was attended by about two thirds of the SAFE member institutes and it was very successful. A commission of five from all over Europe will start the necessary preparations for the development of food safety curricula. Regarding the 2012 call, several possible project proposals were discussed and consortia around these initiatives will be formed as soon as possible.
