Chemical and biological risk assessment of food safety
Two-day trainings and two-hour webinars
Trainings on guidance documents developed by the EFSA Scientific Committee/EFSA on different aspects of chemical and biological risk assessment and different related tools
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has recognized a need for training of its Networks, Panel and Scientific Committee members and scientific staff to facilitate their understanding, uptake and use of the best risk assessment practices developed by EFSA. In addition there is a need to strengthen the cross-fertilization of scientific discussion and support harmonization between the different scientific domains in EFSA.
In cooperation with Fraunhofer ITEM, EFSA offers a series of specialized training courses on certain aspects of food safety risk assessment for members of EFSA’s Scientific Committee/Panels, their working groups, members of the EFSA Networks, and EFSA staff. Course Coordinator is Dr. Annette Bitsch, Fraunhofer ITEM Division Director of Chemical Risk Assessment, who has many years of experience in regulatory risk assessment.
The duration of each training course in the EFSA facilities in Parma (Italy) will be two days (lunch to lunch on three consecutive workdays). ***PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE CORONA PANDEMIC, THE COURSES WILL BE HELD ONLINE ON FOUR CONSECUTIVE HALF DAYS.*** As seating is limited for the two-day training courses, some aspects of most topics will be trained in addition in a two-hour webinar. The webinars will be held a few days after the two-day training courses. Detailed information on each course will be made available via this website.
If you are interested in attending one or several courses or webinars, please register by filling in the corresponding registration form(s). About two weeks prior to each course, you will be informed whether your attendance is possible.
