EFSA Workshop on Exposure Science Online, 24 February 2022 (4h session, time TBC)

EFSA is organising a workshop on the scientific theme of Exposure Science (e.g., in the area of aggregated exposure assessment, data platform needs, exposure reconstruction via dosimetry (forward and reverse)).

The organisation of this workshop is part of a process that EFSA has established for identifying and prioritising scientific themes that might require further investment, and also support partnerships.

This process supports EFSA’s 2021-2027 Strategy and the implementation of the Transparency Regulation, with the latter having provided EFSA with the chance to increase its investment in ensuring that regulatory science is up to date with the latest scientific developments.

This process will help to improve the robustness of risk assessment and optimise the use of resources in the context of verification studies.

The conclusions from this workshop, together with the work that is already being conducted through other EU programmes and at the EU Member State level, will help EFSA to finalise its theme (concept) paper in exposure science.
