testimonial “EFSA is an exciting working environment and a great team everybody would love to join. Coming from the private sector I would have never thought that a public organisation could be so dynamic, scientifically sound and open to new technological and scientific challenges. It is a workplace that respects employees and promotes consistently the principles of the European Union.”
