The Pre-Forum: where to meet experts

FoodSafety4EU pre-forums are events organised with the purpose to ease the discussion and collaboration among researchers, consumers, policymakers, food business operators of the whole value chain, associations, food safety authorities and all other actors working in the food safety domain.

The 2 pre-forums – editions 2021 and 2022 – will focus on specific topics to pave the way to and launch the EU Food Safety Forum at the end of 2023.
This will represent a permanent and open space for discussion and collaboration of all above-mentioned stakeholders of the sector, contributing to building long-term trusted cooperation among the society, the researchers and policymakers.

The core of the EU Food Safety Forum is currently represented by the FoodSafety4EU Supporting Partners, that expressed their interest in such structure from the very beginning. This stakeholder’s platform is open to all entities interested in joining it.

Pre-Forum 2021 – 15th December 2021


Pitch application form

The first edition of the Pre-Forum is planned for the 15th December 2021 (10.00-12.00 CET, online) and the registration is open to all interested stakeholders.

The topic of this edition is “Sustainable food: how to keep it safe?“ and it will be organised into three sessions.

After the introduction, keynote speakers from EFSA and the European Commission will provide insights on the main topic of the day, which will be then analysed by all participants in the interactive discussion foreseen in the second session of the event. Sharing opinions and different perspectives among all stakeholders will contribute to the creation of a trustful and open environment in the food safety domain.

Finally, in the third and last session, selected speakers will pitch their position papers, publications, best practices, cooperation opportunities relevant to the main topic of the pre-forum. This session will encourage the exchange of knowledge and will address the ambition of the Pre-Forum to be a resource for strengthening the cooperation among stakeholders.

If you are interested in participating as a speaker during this session, please, submit your proposal abstract by filling in the dedicated form by the 2nd of December!
