The European Food agency wants to strengthen EU risk assessment

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has called for a further strengthening of the EU's risk assessment capacity at a high-level scientific conference which took place in Parma on 7-8 November.
The two-day conference, "'Challenging boundaries in risk assessment – sharing experiences'", which marked the agency's 10th anniversary, brought together global specialists from a wide range of scientific disciplines. The scientists examined the frontiers of risk assessment and considered future key issues and opportunities. “EFSA functions thanks to the EU risk assessment community,” Hubert Deluyker, EFSA's director of Science Strategy and Coordination, said in a speech.
The conference came amid renewed controversy surrounding the approval of genetically modified crops in Europe after a French biologist from the University of Caen published a study that questioned the safety of Monsanto's GM maize.
