Food safety to be discussed at Milan Expo

Shaping the future of food safety

Europe’s Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has announced a top-level conference in Milan to mark the closing of Expo 2015.

Under the headline “Shaping the future of food safety, together”, the conference on 14-16 October on the Expo grounds will take stock of the challenges and opportunities ahead in the domain of EFSA’s activities, with a focus on two major themes: Assessment Science and Science, Innovation and Society.

Representatives from the scientific and risk assessment community as well as risk managers from in and outside Europe have been invited to contribute to a major scientific conference. It will be organised in plenary and breakout sessions; thematic poster sessions will be held for scientists to showcase their work in areas of relevance for the conference.

This event follows EFSA’s first successful scientific conference “Challenging boundaries in risk assessment – sharing experiences”, organised to mark its 10th year anniversary in November 2012, and is part of the broader EU scientific programme for Expo 2015.
