8th BfR-Summer Academy on Risk Assessment and Risk Communication in the area of Food Safety

The first BfR-Summer Academy was held in 2012. In the last seven years more than 220 participants from over 50 different countries took part in this professional training. The BfR-Summer Academy will be open to participants from public institutes engaged in risk assessment of food and feed.

The course will be conducted by highly qualified and experienced BfR-scientists as well as external experts with profound and long standing experience in risk assessment of chemical or microbial risks. The 8th BfR-Summer Academy is intended for the members of staff of public organisations engaged in food and feed safety, who have already experience in risk assessment analysis. The participants will acquire practical risk assessment analysis and gain deeper understanding in risk communication measures. Consequently this BfR-Summer Academy is from professionals to professionals.
