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 pose questions to EFSA’s scientific experts.

  • All attendees should read EFSA’s Guidelines for Observers before registering to attend an open plenary meeting.
  • For questions or queries on open plenary meetings at EFSA, please contact us at: publicmeetings [at] efsa.europa.eu

There are only a limited number of seats available at the meeting. Therefore priority will be given on a first-come, first-served basis and EFSA reserves the right to screen applications to ensure geographical balance and broad participation. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person you can watch via our dedicated web stream.
