Observers - attend open scientific meetings

Follow EFSA's scientists up close. Attend scientific meetings open to observers.

Observers can attend EFSA’s open plenary meetings to see first-hand how EFSA’s Scientific Committee and its Scientific Panels discuss and adopt their scientific assessments. We encourage attendees to interact with and pose questions to EFSA’s scientific experts.

  • All attendees should read EFSA’s Guidelines for Observers before registering to attend an open plenary meeting.
