FoodSafety4EU - Multi-stakeholder Platform for Food Safety in Europe

FOODSAFETY4EU is a Project focused to design, develop and release a multi-stakeholder platform for the future European Food Safety System


FOODSAFETY4EU is a Project focused to design, develop and release a multi-stakeholder platform for the future
European Food Safety System (FSS), by structuring a participatory process, which sustains a responsive and adaptive
community of FSS actors.
The platform will enable the FSS actors to access efficiently resources and data, synchronize food safety research
strategies, share and exchange scientific knowledge and contributions for the future EU FSS. It will boost interactive
cooperation within the system and with the civil society for enhancing public confidence through dedicated tools.
A European Food Safety Forum will be set up to officially consolidate the participatory process and guarantee the
long term science-policy-society interface. New digital tools, co-designed strategies and communication models will
support Food Safety Authorities (FSAs), EU Agencies, policy makers, scientists and civil society in a coordinate
approach, thus contributing to strengthen the EU approach to risk assessment & communication.

A participatory process on 4 levels will be applied, inluding 1) Food Safety Hubs; 2) FSOLabs; 3)
Digital tools; 4) FOODSAFETY4EU long term interface.
1) Food Safety Hubs - A first level of interaction between meso- and micro- level actors to share a homogeneous
approach will be represented by 4 Food Safety hubs in 4 defined EU areas (fig. 3). These 4 areas face quite
similar issues in the local food safety systems, and have different food production chains, market dynamics and
innovation/technological levels: 1) Northern area (Nordic/Baltic countries); 2) Western area (West and some EU
central countries); 3) Eastern area (Adriatic sea and Balcan countries); 4) Southern area (Mediterranean countries).

Food Safety Operational Labs - the second layer of the participatory process includes the organization of 4
social labs, named “Food Safety Operational Labs” (FSOLab), in which FSS actors from micro, meso and macro
level will interact.
Digital tools – A third layer of interaction will be realized through the implementation of digital tools (fig. 6),
constituted by an interlinked collection of Apps enabling: i) the interaction among the different actors from the
macro-, meso- and micro- level within the FSS
FOODSAFETY4EU long term interface - The fourth level of interaction among the FSS actors will be
realized by consolidating the participatory and networking process - in order to propose our platform as interface
for long term science-policy-society cooperation for the EU Commission
