EFSA lance l'appel à candidatures pour son programme de bourses EU-FORA


L'EFSA lance un appel à candidatures pour les scientifiques individuels intéressés à devenir boursiers du cycle 2020/2021 de son programme de bourses EU-FORA (European Food Risk Assessment Fellowship Programme), une initiative clé pour renforcer la capacité d'évaluation scientifique de l'UE et la communauté des connaissances.

Les candidats intéressés trouveront sur cette page web de l'EFSA les nouvelles complètes, plus d'informations et les documents de soutien pour leurs candidatures.



EFSA is calling for applications from individual scientists interested to become fellows of the 2020/2021 cycle of the European Food Risk Assessment (EU-FORA) Fellowship Programme, a key initiative for building the EU’s scientific assessment capacity and knowledge community.

Interested applicants find at this EFSA`s dedicated webpage the full news, more information and supporting documents for their applications.


Deadline: the call is open until 31 January 2020.




Target group: early to mid-career scientists from EU and EFTA countries, giving them the opportunity to widen their knowledge and hands-on experience in food safety risk assessment, specifically:

  • young researchers completing their PhD thesis,
  • young Post-Doc researchers completing their contracts,
  • scientists looking for new career opportunities,
  • young researchers looking for an opportunity to acquire knowledge and experience in the food safety risk assessment area,
  • young and mid-career scientists looking for an opportunity of mobility for one year in an organisation outside their country of residence,
  • young and mid-career scientists working in the public or private sector who would like to bring back to their organisation knowledge and experience regarding food safety risk assessment.

As the novelty since the last edition, also now there are eligible to apply i) not only scientists working at one of the Competent Organisation designated by Member States and ii) also currently unemployed interested applicants.


How does it work: the selected fellows will spend 12 months of “learning-by-doing” in a European food safety risk assessment organisation outside their home country. At the EU-FORA hosting sites, fellows will be fully integrated, participate in the organisation’s work, gain first-hand experience and increase their knowledge of many scientific aspects relevant to food safety risk assessment.

At the end of the cycle, they will be awarded a certificate of participation and a scientific report of their work will be published in a special issue of the EFSA Journal. Fellows will also benefit from participating at four food risk assessment training modules (in Parma, Vienna, Berlin and Athens).
