Science, food, society: EFSA conference 2018 – day 2

After putting risk assessment in a societal context during yesterday’s opening plenary, the EFSA Conference today focuses on advancing risk assessment science. In four break-out sessions, leading experts from across the globe explore the future of risk assessment related to the environment, human health, nutrition and biological hazards.

Topics include: the role of ecosystem services in environmental risk assessment, advances and challenges in human health risk assessment (to be continued tomorrow), the switch from nutrient deficiencies to diseases of excess as predominant public health concern in developed countries, and the tracing of risks along a globalised food chain.
