Food Standards Agency to hold first International Food Regulatory Analysis Conference
We are pleased to announce that we are hosting our first major conference on regulatory analysis in London in March 2020.
Join us at the QEII on 30 and 31 March 2020 as we showcase the cutting-edge analysis and research tackling the biggest challenges facing the food landscape. You’ll hear from experts on food safety and science from academia, industry, international organisations and partner food regulators from around the world.
For the last 20 years we have played a key role in protecting consumers and ensuring the food industry is as successful internationally as it is domestically. However, we live in a rapidly changing world. To be ready for the future, regulators need excellence in analysis, research and evidence. Global markets, economic and societal change, emerging technologies, climate change, unsustainable consumption models will all have a profound impact on food safety regulation.
From novel packaging materials to machine learning, we'll look at how international analytical research today is helping regulators understand the global food system and the drivers of change.
This event will give you unparalleled opportunities to:
- Engage with talks and panel sessions from experts in food safety, economics and other social sciences and other branches of regulatory science
- Deep-dive into cutting-edge research with academics and food regulators from around the world
- Connect with a diverse and unique network of international food regulatory practitioners, researchers and industry professionals
- Network with peers, share insights and forge pivotal links within the industry
An outline agenda is available on our conference website (Opens in a new window).
The event is free to attend. Register now to guarantee your place (Opens in a new window). Places are limited.
