About RARA

To stimulate alignment between national and EU research funding, EFSA brought together funders, policy/decision makers and leading food safety researchers to showcase how research outputs can support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals and the Green Deal.

More than 250 delegates from 40 countries gathered in Berlin on 7 December 2022 to discuss Research & Innovation investment that is crucial for a safe transition towards sustainable food systems, the importance to define One Health research needs, and how to align research efforts.
