Food safety is a top priority for the European Commission. The central goal is to assure a high level of protection of human health through safe products by the food
industry - the Europe's largest manufacturing and employment sector.
Kicked off in January 2021, the EU-funded FOODSAFETY4EU project (https://foodsafety4.eu/) will design, develop and release a multi-stakeholder platform for the future European
Food Safety System (FSS). The platform aims to establish a network of FSS actors at national, European and international level. It will enable them to access resources and data
efficiently, synchronise food safety research strategies, share and exchange scientific knowledge and contribute to transparent communication regarding the FSS.
The platform will be built through a dynamic participatory process: a structured dialogue on policies, research strategies and communication initiatives relevant for the FSS.
This approach will maximise cooperation within the system and with the civil society, boosting the co-creation of strategies and their translation into policies and funding programmes.
