Annual Symposium 2021 – Nurturing the next generation

Digital, Online

The 2021 ILSI Europe online Annual Symposium (IEAS) was a premiere gathering of experts from around the world that met to shed light on the current and future challenges on nutrition, food safety and sustainability. It was 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.

16.45-17.00: 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 2022 and will provide best practices for analytical approaches in identifying and quantifying NIAS.

The Task Force organised 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 have been 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 has been fed into a discussion to determine if there was a need for initiatives to provide harmonized guidelines for safety assessment and risk management of potential migrants from FCMAs.

About the WC11 Congress

The 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences (WC11) is a congress with global outreach. Since the COVID19 virus is still present across the world - the event is presented in an innovative platform that will showcase the advances of IT Technology in a virtual, but realistic congress environment. The overarching theme for designing the scientific program is "3Rs in transition: from development to application". The WC11 Congress is an excellent space to connect with people all over the world to gain knowledge, launch new ideas and brainstorm about the technological advancements supportive for realising non-animal test models of the highest grade and boosting scientific research in the 3Rs. The event will be held virtually from 23 August to 2 September 2021. For more details please visit the WC11 website.

ILSI Europe sponsored a Session 'S70: Challenges of Non-Animal Approaches for Food Safety & Nutrition in the 21st Century: From Inception to Application' on Wednesday, 25th August from 15.00 to 17.00 CEST.

This session proposal aimed to discuss:

• Different applicable legislations for non-animal approaches in the food sector
• The way food scientists approach animal and animal-free studies
• Benchmarking of non-animal approaches in different industry sectors
• Real life risk assessment application in food safety and nutrition ILSI Europe session on 'S70: Challenges of Non-Animal Approaches for Food Safety & Nutrition in the 21th Century: From Inception to Application
Wednesday, 25 August 2021 from 15.00-17.00 CEST
  • Applicable legislation for non-animal approaches in the food system - Katrin Schutte, European Commission (BE)
  • Animal-free strategies in food safety & nutrition - Alie de Boer, Food Claims Centre Venlo, Campus Venlo, Maastricht University (NL)
  • The windy road to the use of non-animal approaches for regulations of chemicals - Robert Landsiedel, BASF SE (DE)
  • What are the strategies that can be used now in food safety risk assessment avoiding animal testing? - Alan Boobis, National Heart & Lung Institute, Imperial College London (UK)

Booth

ILSI Europe has also an e-booth in exhibition area: Come visit us and do not hesitate to contact us to organise a one-to-one meeting, we would be very happy to meet & discuss with you.

16.45-17.00: 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 2022 and will provide best practices for analytical approaches in identifying and quantifying NIAS.

The Task Force organised 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 have been 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 has been fed into a discussion to determine if there was a need for initiatives to provide harmonized guidelines for safety assessment and risk management of potential migrants from FCMAs.

Please be advised that this event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.  If you would like to receive a recording of the event please let us know via the contacts below:
