Six Institutes agreed to combine their scientific knowledge, expertise and experience in order to promote food safety in Europe.

- Institute of Food Research (United Kingdom)

- l’Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (France)

- TNO Nutrition and Food Research (Netherlands)

- VTT Biotechnology (Finland)

- Wageningen University and Research Ctr (Netherlands

- ISPA-CNR (Italy)

The European Association for Food Safety

The first SAFE consortium goals and objectives were to organise common small and big projects in the EU framework programmes and manage these projects from a central office in Brussels

HOWEVER

The Commission made it clear that she would be willing to co-operate with a broad and open association and rather not with a small exclusive elite club

The European Association for Food Safety

Therefore

The Annual General Meeting of the European Association for Food Safety (the SAFE consortium) decided on April 2nd 2004:

“In a growing and integrating Europe, the SAFE consortium should be represented in the majority of the 25 EU member states, in the Associated Countries and in the new Candidate Member States”.

To achieve this goal, the SAFE consortium started attracting the membership of institutes from the current and the new EU states and the Associated States.

EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR FOOD SAFETY

The SAFE consortium

  • The requirements for a full membership according to the SAFE consortium Articles of Association (Statutes):

  • The institutes should have a scientific integrity guaranteed by the unlimited right to publish in the public interest.

  • i.e. have the possibility to speak freely about food safety issues not hampered by their links to government and industry

  • 2. The institutes should show academic quality, proven by publications in international scientific journals.

The SAFE consortium interprets Food Safety Sciences in a broad sense:

  • microbiology, (classical, predictive and molecular)

  • molecular genetics and genomics for food safety

  • toxicology (chemical, veterinary pharmaceutical and biological),

  • allergy and food intolerance

  • exposure assessment and risk evaluation

  • risk assessment, (risk management, risk communication)

  • existing and novel food technologies

  • packaging technology

  • consumer sciences.

    For the complete chains of food and feed production:

  • primary production – processing – packaging – transportation – distribution – retail - consumption and consumer issues

    Geographical ‘operating area’: All of the 25 European Union member states,

    the Associated Countries: Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Israel, Turkey and

    the new candidate members: Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia

"The SAFE consortium" presentation at the Workshop Food Safety Research and Applications in Poland, Warsaw 071206


Official Mission as stated in the Statutes is to:

“stimulate the public debate in Europe on the scientific aspects of food safety, by making available up-to-date knowledge from institutes whose scientific integrity is guaranteed by the unlimited right to publish in the public interest”.

Goals

  • 1. Work together to develop and promoteinterdisciplinary research projects and partnerships in the Framework Programmes of the European Commission and its institutions, national governments and food authorities.

  • 2. Participate in the public debate on food safety issues by organisingcongresses, conferences, seminars and workshops, participating in conferences and workshops given by others and by other activities like communications on the web site or in print.

  • 3. Be the independent spokesman on behalf of the member institutes concerning view points in the food safety arena, e.g. by participation in EU networks and projects.

    This can be done on invitation as well as on the consortium’s own initiative; focus will be on issues that concern industrial as well as governmental actors in the food chain and its management.

Be the independent spokesman on behalf of the member institutes

concerning view points in the food safety arena, e.g. by participation in

EU networks and projects. Focus will be on issues that concern industrial

as well as governmental actors in the food chain and its management.

Examples will be given in the following sheets

Co-operation between

and

Pre-SAFEFOODERA: first competition, then co-operation in proposal development.

Contents: Investigation on current and future food safety issues in the participating countries.

Expansion: Investigation of the possible extension of SAFEFOODERA to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Czech and Slovak Republics, Romania, Bulgaria and other countries.

Organising the stakeholder meetings from November 2006 to April 2007.

Future: Develop a vision on the future of food safety research in Europe and develop projects and research structures that will follow the current generation food safety projects and networks.
