The programme is designed predominantly to offer a 1-year, learning-by-doing fellowship service placement accompanied by a specific Food Risk Assessment training programme, to attract early-mid career scientists from the EU with limited experience in food safety risk assessment. Fellows would be placed in art.36 Organisations with solid risk assessment capacity in other MSs in order to build capacity across organisations and MSs, contributing to harmonising methodologies and practises within the EU. This procurement procedure aims to select a contractor for the update of training materials, organisation and delivery of training activities under the EFSA European Food Risk Assessment Fellowship Programme.
