ABSTRACT: In 2004 the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) initiated the Scientific Colloquium Series to provide a forum for fundamental debates on certain scientific issues underlying risk assessment in food and feed. Rather than being a series of lectures, Colloquia are organised in a way that provides ample opportunity for interactive exchange of views and discussion amongst participating experts. Following a short plenary session consisting of a few introductory presentations, participants split up into different discussion groups. The outcome of these discussions are presented and discussed in a final plenary session to formulate the conclusions of the Colloquium and, as appropriate, recommendations to EFSA and its relevant Scientific Panel(s). Scientific cooperation is an important aspect of EFSA's work, contributing to the provision of reliable and accurate risk assessment.
