11th BfR-Summer Academy 2023

The 11th BfR-Summer Academy 2023 is a professional expert training course on risk assessment and risk communication in the area of food safety.

Welcome to the 11th BfR-Summer Academy on Risk Assessment and Risk Communication in the area of Food Safety!

The 11th BfR-Summer Academy 2023 will be conducted by highly qualified and experienced BfR-scientists as well as external experts with profound and long-standing experience in the assessment and communication of chemical or microbial risks. The course is intended for members of staff of public organisations engaged in food and feed safety, who already have experience in risk assessment analysis.
