EU-FORA Fellowship Programme: apply now for second round

EFSA has opened applications for the 2018/2019 cycle of its European Food Risk Assessment (EU-FORA) Fellowship Programme, a key initiative for building the EU’s scientific assessment capacity and knowledge community. Following the successful launch of the programme earlier this year, EFSA is preparing a second 12-month round to start in September 2018, and is calling for applications from potential fellows and hosting sites.

The fellowship programme is aimed at early to mid-career scientists from EU national risk assessment bodies and other Article 36 organisations, giving them the opportunity to increase their expertise in food safety risk assessment.

Scientists participating in the scheme will spend 12 months working and gaining hands-on experience at another European food safety risk assessment organisation. They will also benefit from four food risk assessment training modules taking place in Parma, Vienna, Berlin and Athens.

For more information on the programme and how to apply, go to the EFSA website. To learn more about the expectations and impressions of some current fellows, check out this short video.
