The SAFEFOODERA primary objective is to establish a European platform for protecting consumers against health risks through a co-ordination action ERA-NET of 15 Member States, 3 Associated Countries and 3 regional organisations representing in total 450 million European citizens
The provisional strategic topics 1. Emerging risks 1. Emerging risks - A potential food or feed borne or diet-related hazard that may become a risk for human health in the (near) future. 2. Risk analysis in food safety 2. Risk analysis in food safety - Methodologies in protecting the consumers against health risks and misleading information, including crisis management, consumer perception and risk/benefit analysis. 3. Contaminants 3. Contaminants - Health risks from natural- and environmental contaminants in the food chain. 3.1 Process induced risk 3.1 Process induced risk - Health risks from chemical pollution formed during processing of foods. 4. Traceability 4. Traceability - Documented and harmonised routines for recall of food products from the value chain - Development of reliable traceability methods and systems. 5. Pathogens 5. Pathogens - Pathogen free production systems - From reactive to preventive and predictive actions.

Dialogue or a workshop with stakeholders Facilitating pan-European dissemination and exploitation of research results. Time schedule SAFEFOODERA Stakeholder meetings:
Aims: To investigate the feasibility of establishing a food safety research ideas forum for public funders to facilitate opportunities for joint activities. Planned Workshop in Bonn - 30 - 31 October 2006
ERA-NET+ This could take the form of a Community top-up for joint calls of proposals (to the tune of 30% of total costs, provided a number of conditions are satisfied), where participating entities create a common fund for the purpose of the action. As such, the ERA-NET+ mechanism, which will remain a simple and flexible coordination mechanism between national or regional research programmes, could become a more effective bridge toward…..
the topic should have a high relevance and has to involve a sufficient number of Member States the field of the proposal needs to be focused and shall be covered by the Framework Programme, both in terms of contents and of budget allocation. the field of the proposal has to be of major interest for the Community it has to be clearly demonstrated that Article 169 is the appropriate instrument to allow the Community to contribute to the coordination and the cooperation between national RTD programmes and to achieve the foreseen goals. following the approval by Council and European Parliament the initiative can be started, appropriate structures can be created and further decision making can take place between the involved Member States and the Commission.
