EFSA 2027 draft strategy submitted for public consultation
EFSA has launched a public consultation on its draft 2027 strategy. EFSA welcomes contributions from all those who wish to have a say in the strategic direction that the Authority will take in the years to come. The public consultation is open until May 9 (new extended deadline).
Bernhard Url, Executive Director of EFSA, said: “EFSA’s 2027 strategy comes at an important time for the Authority. With the recent application of the Transparency Regulation and in the broader context of the Green Deal and the European Commission’s farm-to-fork strategy, we need to adapt and evolve as an organization if we are to continue to serve as a cornerstone of food security in the EU.
“The ambitious plans we set out in Strategy 2027 will guide us through this exciting next phase in our history. “
The draft strategy is based on five key values of excellence, independence, openness, responsibility and cooperation, and structured around three high-level strategic objectives. They focus on:
- Provide reliable scientific advice and farm-to-fork risk communication.
- Ensure preparation for future risk analysis needs.
- Empower people and ensure organizational agility.
The draft strategy is accompanied by a high-level implementation plan detailing the activities that EFSA will carry out to achieve its strategic objectives. It was developed in close consultation with the EFSA Management Board and the final document will be shaped by the feedback from the public consultation.
EFSA is particularly keen to receive contributions from its institutional partners at national, European and international levels, as well as from its various stakeholders.
