1 The vision To build a staircase to European excellence in food safety research programming through trust and mutual understanding

2 Building the staircase by stimulating European countries to develop food safety research programmes with transnational activitiesby stimulating European countries to develop food safety research programmes with transnational activities by balancing the need for research and funding at national, regional and European levelby balancing the need for research and funding at national, regional and European level by stimulating open communications between authorities (EFSA, regional/national), industries, consumers and scientists based on scientific knowledgeby stimulating open communications between authorities (EFSA, regional/national), industries, consumers and scientists based on scientific knowledge

3 2003 ERA-NET PROFORSAFE 2002 NRA-NET Processing for food safety 1993 NRA-NET NordFood NordFood The Background of the Staircase 2003 ERA-NET PERIAPT 2004 ERA-NET SAFEFOODERA

4 Project title: Food Safety - Forming a European platform for protecting consumers against health risks

5 2008 A European platform for protecting consumers against food health risks The Staircase to the Future Information Exchange External communication Strategic Activities Joint Activities Transnational Activities External communication 2004 ERA-NET SAFEFOODERA

6 The primary objective (1) is to establish a European platform for protecting consumers against health risks from the consumption of food through a co-ordination action ERA-NET of 15 Member States, 3 Associated Countries and 2 regional organisations representing in total 480 million European citizens

7

8 The primary objective (2) From each country one representative from a public body responsible for financing or managing research activities on food safety issues carried out at national or regional level is appointed to the European Steering Committee (ESC), which will have the overall responsibility for directing and managing the work.

9 The primary objective (3) One representative with high standards of scientific excellence will be appointed to the European Expert Advisory Group (EEAG), providing scientific and technical support when requested by the ESC.

10 The primary objective (4) The ESC and the project management will work closely together to compare ongoing and proposed activities in the national food safety research programmes of the participating countries, and to investigate the scope for strategic co-operation, harmonisation and development of joint programmes of activity.

11 The benefits The benefits Short term: Learning from each other Short term: Learning from each other (Best Practice – 0 -1 year). (Best Practice – 0 -1 year). Long term: Lasting transnational research within food safety topics of key importance to European consumers, authorities and industry Long term: Lasting transnational research within food safety topics of key importance to European consumers, authorities and industry

28 WP 3: Strategic Activities General objective: based on the information from WP2, PERIAPT and PROFORSAFE 1)to identify the most important complementarities between ongoing national and regional programmes and the most important research topics 2)to identify the organisational barriers hindering transnational research co-operation Emerging risks: to identify and create a network of key sources, resources and instruments to support the identification of new- or re-emerging food- and feed related risks.

29 WP 3: Strategic Activities WP 3 aims at developing strategic cooperation between the national research programmes and projects dealing with food safety.

35 WP4: Joint Activities General objective: develop a joint action plan on new opportunities and gaps identified from WP3, including, where appropriate, training activities and cooperative networks of key actors. WP Facilitator: Alisdair Wotherspoon

36 WP4: Joint Activities Commences month 15 of project - October 2005Commences month 15 of project - October 2005 Key relationship to outputs of WP3 (and WP2) if to start well/on time - therefore need to be involved closely in earlier work Main deliverables Main deliverables - report on joint action plan in food safety by August report on joint networks of excellence in food safety by July 2007

37 WP4: Joint Activities Work that can be usefully done before month 15 - better understanding of Nordic model - as basis for solving challenges - planning for workshop in month 20 - discuss and agree objectives - who to involve and the process - gather information on established networks of excellence - how?, what?

38 WP4: Joint Activities Workshop on joint training activities - to build on outputs from WP3 of identified gaps and opportunities - not necessarily to initiate training activities but to develop an action plan of how these might be determined and planned ie concentrate on process, mechanisms - perhaps look at some examples of how others have tackled similar situations - use facilitators to focus discussions and maximise chance of achieving objectives

39 WP4: Joint Activities - elaboration of joint networks of excellence - elaboration of joint networks of excellence - avoid confusion with FP NoEs (though may include these?) - criteria to define excellence, how to gather and assess information, mechanisms to promote formation, development of networks - to include possibility of setting up networks of national programme managers - how would these work, training exchanges?

40 WP4: Joint Activities Task management - need early discussions in ESC and management group to agree particular aims and objectives eg of workshop and so factor in earlier work where it is most efficient - possible role for EEAG in work to deliver WP, what might this be? - possibly set up a sub-group of partners to help drive forward the more detailed work

42 WP 5: Transnational activities General objective: to use the information from WP 2, 3 & 4 to build a transnational research programme to be included in participants national food safety programmes

43 WP 5: Transnational activities Major steps in a call for research programme –Elaboration of the call for proposal –Dissemination of the call for proposal –Selection procedure for the submitted projects –Management of selected projects * –Dissemination of results of funded projects * this step could be difficult to harmonised

44 WP 5: Transnational activities Objective 1: to build a common research programme in agreement with the ESC Objective 2: to disseminate the call to the adequate researchers across partners countries Objective 3: to build a common accepted and efficient selection procedure for the projects Objective 4: to disseminate efficiently the results of research funded Objective 5: to evaluate the quality of the call

45 Objective 1: to build a common research programme in agreement with the ESC The call should be realistic in order to allow to conduct an evaluation procedure i.e. « first call » rather than « pilot call » Several strategic topic (s) should have been selected from WP 3 & 4 Several members of the ERA net should be involved Validation of the transnational call by the ESC

46 Objective 2: to disseminate the call to the adequate researchers across partners countries Establishment of a procedure for the dissemination of a European call across countries Establishment of indicators of success to be used for objective 5 –Global response rate –Distribution of response rates by country –Quality of respondents –Adequation of responses with the topic (s) –…………

47 Objective 3: to build a common accepted and efficient selection procedure for the projects Compilation of evaluation procedures in recent calls at national level in the field of food safety Interviews with programme managers to analyse the key points in the selection criterias Establishment of a draft protocole Validation of the draft protocole by the ESC

48 Objective 4: to disseminate efficiently the results of research funded Establishment of a procedure for the dissemination of results across countries –Scientific journal vs report –Paper vs web site –Workshops… Establishment of indicators of success to be used for objective 5 –Questionnaire for researchers –………..

49 Objective 5: to evaluate the quality of the call Assessment of the efficiency of each phase in relation with previously elaborated indicators –With national programme managers (ESC) for objectives 1 & 3 –With researchers for objectives 2 & 4 Identification and correction of the gaps Production of guidelines for future transnational calls (final report)
