Annual Symposium 2021 – Nurturing the next generation

Digital, Online

The 2021 ILSI Europe online Annual Symposium (IEAS) is a premiere gathering of experts from around the world that meet to shed light on the current and future challenges on nutrition, food safety and sustainability. It is a key opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to give answer to these questions, discussing and debating on the themes in the spotlight. Thanks to the multiple parallel session, this year’s program triggers the interest of multisector scientific minds.

The Food Contaminants Task Force of ILSI Europe, University of Minho, and the Food Safety Task Force of ILSI Brasil, are proud to announce their joint digital seminar for Early Career Scientist.

The 2021 edition will focus on mycotoxins research and mitigation strategies in Europe and Latin America.

  • Introduce scientific topics related to mycotoxins and mycotoxins mitigation.
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative research between Europe and Latin America.
  • Strengthen interaction between young researchers from Europe and Latin America with ILSI Europe and ILSI Brasil.

The Organising Committee is pleased to launch the call for abstracts (for live web presentations) for the Early Career Scientists Seminar 2021, taking place via live web streaming on December 15th, 2021, 14.00-17.00 CET.

We invite scientists who obtained their highest degree (MsC or PhD) within the past 10 years to take this opportunity to boost the visibility of their work in front of an audience made up of scientists and experts from Europe and Latin America.

In your abstract, you should include:

  • The context: e.g., what problem do you study and why is it important?
  • The methods: give a brief overview of the methods you have used in your research.
  • The key findings: describe your most important results.
  • The conclusions: what are the implications of your research?

The best submissions will be invited to participate in the live keynote session. The other submissions will be invited to record a video of their presentation that will be shared during the event.

The registration opens on November 1st. Abstract submitters will be notified when registration is open. Participation to the event is free.

For any question, please contact Dr Siméon Bourdoux, sbourdoux@ilsieurope.be.

16.30-17.00: Conclusion & Closing

In the past 5 years, the Packaging Materials Task Force has been building a set of tools to demonstrate the safety of food contact materials and articles (FCMAs) regarding non-intentionally added substances (NIAS). The task force has already published two documents on those substances and bioassays for assessing their toxicology. A third document is expected early 2021 and will provide best practices for analytical approaches in identifying and quantifying NIAS.

The Task Force is organising a workshop to discuss the potential need for guidance for a harmonised approach to perform risk assessment and risk management of migrants from all FCMs.

During the workshop, invited stakeholders will be invited to share their perspective on:

  • Availability and applicability of guidance for intentionally added substances (IAS);
  • Availability and applicability of guidance for NIAS;
  • What is the need for non-plastics FCMs?
  • What is foreseen in terms of risk management of migrants from FCMs in Europe in line with the Farm-to-Fork strategy?
  • What are the hurdles and research need to reach a harmonised approach?

The input will be fed into a discussion to determine if there is a need for initiatives to provide harmonized guidelines for safety assessment and risk management of potential migrants from FCMAs.
