Staying relevant in a changing world

PLENARY SESSION

Friday 21 September 2018 / 08:30 - 13:00

This session will explore how science, food and society might change in the future. Speakers will present scenarios addressing different elements of the environment-agriculture-food-diet-health spectrum. Panellists will then discuss how such changes may impact food safety, risk assessment and communication, and how to ensure that we are prepared to deal with these consequences.

Relevant points emerging from the moderated panel discussion as well as the break-out sessions of the previous days will feed into EFSA’s Strategy 2027.​
