Strategic plan of the European Food Safety Authority for 2009-2013 - Committed to ensuring that Europe's food is safe

Funded under: FP7-KBBE

Abstract

The Plan aims to provide medium- to long-term strategic direction for the Authority and to establish the priorities in light of an evolving operating environment. In doing so it attempts to identify the drivers of change and to analyse their implications for the future organisation. The extensive consultation process involved in preparing the Strategic Plan has provided the opportunity for EFSA's network of partners and stakeholders and other interested parties to contribute to planning the Authority's future direction. The contributions we have received from European institutions and agencies, national food safety agencies, international organisations, stakeholders, EFSA staff and Management Board members - and through the public consultation on EFSA's website - have been invaluable in providing a range of different perspectives and experiences that have enabled us to present a clearer picture of the challenges we face over the next five years and the approaches required to address them.
As well as communicating our corporate vision, the Strategic Plan will serve as the basis for our Annual Management Plans and will ensure that there is coherence and continuity in our planning. As Europe's risk assessor for food and feed safety and associated fields, EFSA's priorities will continue to evolve during the period covered by the Plan. Therefore, the Strategic Plan is intended to be a live, dynamic document which will be revisited regularly.
