FP7 Collab4Safety: Towards sustainable global food safety collaboration

Guaranteeing the long term availability of safe foods is a global concern that has initiated a large number of activities, including research, policy development and implementation, legislation and training.

Extensive information is generated about food safety, but it is fragmented, and not internationally disseminated.

The Collab4Safety consortium will establish a global network on food safety with the aim of developing a sustainable coordination platform for exchange of food safety information about research findings, capacity building and policies and facilitate the control and mitigation of existing and emerging food risks.

WP1 aims to map international research, existing and emerging food safety problems, innovation and training activities and policies in the area of food safety and to identify gaps in knowledge salient to policy development.
