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.

Submission of abstracts

The Organising Committee launched 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 invited 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.

This year the abstracts focused on 'Mycotoxins research and mitigation strategies'

  • The best submissions were invited to present their work as keynote speaker in the live session.
  • The other submissions were invited to record a video of their presentation that will be shared during the event.

Speakers Program

11.15-11.20: 5-min Break

12.15-13.00: Lunch Break

13.00-15.00: Breakout sessions

  1. Areas for improvement and harmonization in the risk assessment of migrants

15.00-15.15: Break

15.15-16.45: Report on the breakout sessions

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.

Objectives

  • 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.

Context

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

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

  • 15.45-16.30: Panel discussion - Chairs: Michele Suman, Prof. Armando Venancio

Submission of abstracts

The Organising Committee launched 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 invited 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.

This year the abstracts focused on 'Mycotoxins research and mitigation strategies'

  • The best submissions were invited to present their work as keynote speaker in the live session.
  • The other submissions were invited to record a video of their presentation that will be shared during the event.
