ILSI Europe hosts, sponsors, and co-organizes a variety of scientific events. These include independent symposia; workshops; hands-on scientific training; and sessions held as part of the program of larger scientific and professional meetings.
ILSI Europe’s Sessions and Continuing Education Course (CEC) were jointly organised by four Food Safety Task Forces: Alternatives to Animal Testing in Food Safety Task Force, Nutrition and Efficacy Studies Task Force, New Approaches to Chemical Risk Assessment for Foods and Food Ingredients Task Force, Packaging Materials Task Force and Threshold of Toxicological Concern Task Force.
As the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) concept is gaining more attention in terms of risk assessment application, there is a need for the alignment and harmonisation on how the concept is used. ILSI Focal Point China, in collaboration with Chinese Society of Toxicology (CSOT), China National Centre for Food Safety and Risk Assessment and the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) Task Force of ILSI Europe organised this two day workshop to promote innovative research on toxicological transformation in the fields of food, chemical and environment in Asia.
ILSI Europe’s Roundtable discussion organised by the Microbiological Food Safety Task Force in collaboration with International Association for Food Protection IAFP. 25 April 2019, Nantes, France.
Amongst policy, research and industry experts there is strong consensus that the European food system needs to be transformed to ensure the continued food and nutrition security. Research and innovation is expected to significantly contribute to such a transformation. To achieve such an ambitious goal, all relevant stakeholders involved in research and innovation in the food system need to be brought together; however, overarching factors that contribute to the transformative potential of research and innovation initiatives, such as trends, good practices and networks, social movements, educational approaches, technological innovations and potential breakthroughs need to be well understood also.
