Staying relevant in a changing world

PLENARY SESSION

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

This plenary session will close the conference and generate preparatory material for EFSA’s 2025 Strategy. The session will be interactive, with speakers, panelists and the audience exploring different future scenarios. The depicted futures will focus on the global food safety context from a range of angles covering scientific, technological, socio-ethical, economic and political dimensions. Relevant points emerging from the break-out sessions in the days before will be accounted for. The session will close with a moderated panel discussion whose recommendations will feed EFSA’s Strategy 2025.
