The European food safety ecosystem is facing a significant challenge: the complexity of the underlying science is relentlessly increasing. The main drivers for this development are the exponential growth of data and evidence, the sophistication of assessment methodologies and the continuous emergence of new toxicological criteria.

Therefore, a need emerges to rethink how each actor of the food safety ecosystem can contribute its knowledge within a community to tackle complexity as a team.
