Multi-stakeholder platform for the EU Food Safety System
FOODSAFETY4EU project is contributing to enhancing and better structure the EU Food Safety System (FSS) through the co-design of an integrated and multi-stakeholder platform. Our collective effort is enabling a network of FSS actors at the national, European and international level to access resources and data efficiently, synchronise food safety research strategies, share and exchange scientific knowledge.

A growing network covering 4 Hubs throughout Europe
The F4EU platform involves a network of 60+ Supporting Partners from different European areas, named "hubs". Our Supporting Partners cooperate within the platform by sharing news and information, participating in surveys and consultations, contributing to our FSOLab, thus providing a regional/national view in shaping the Food Safety System.
