Call launch: supporting the food safety systems of the future


The European Commission has launched a call to develop a research and innovation platform on food safety. It will make it easier for national food safety authorities, EU agencies, policy-makers, the scientific community and civil society to coordinate research efforts. The platform is expected to include information on food safety research and to improve coherence between national and EU funding in food safety research. It will also facilitate new approaches to communication on food safety. Major outcomes of the Commission’s project will be trans-national research programmes, the alignment of national and EU research agendas, and the creation of a Food Safety Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) to address consumers’ expectations, emerging technologies and policy priorities.

Call ID: H2020-FNR-2020

The deadline for applications is 22 January 2020.
