Do you have the skills and experience to assess the safety of novel and traditional foods, evaluate nutrient sources or assess the scientific substantiation of health claims? Would you like to put your expertise at the service of hundreds of millions of European consumers? Then you should consider applying as an expert for EFSA’s Scientific Panel on Nutrition, Novel Food and Food Allergens (NDA).
What does the NDA Panel do?
The Panel provides scientific advice in relation to human nutrition.
