On the occasion of the World EXPO 2015 exhibition in Milan, which will have food as its central theme, representatives from the scientific and risk assessment community as well as risk managers from in and outside Europe are invited to contribute to a major scientific conference EFSA is organising from 14 to 16 October 2015 at the EXPO site.
The conference 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.
It will be organised in plenary and break-out 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', which was organised to mark its 10-year anniversary in November 2012, and is part of the broader EU scientific programme for EXPO 2015.
Registrations and abstracts submission are due to open in January 2015 but further information is available on the conference web site, www.efsaexpo2015.eu/.
