New online Arab Food Safety Scientists Platform launched

30 March 2018

The Arab Food Safety Scientists Platform (AFSS) is a new web-based portal bringing together food safety scientists of Arab-origin operating within the Arab region and beyond.

The AFSS Platform is a key component of the “Arab Food Safety Initiative for Trade Facilitation” (SAFE Initiative), which aims at establishing a sustained engagement between the academia-food safety science community and the Arab Task Force (ATF) on food safety.

The AFSS platform will act as a gateway connecting governments, universities, science & technology institutions, as well as the private sector, with the objective of providing a facilitated access, reach, and communication to a pool of food safety scientists across various fields and industries.

The platform will also provide stakeholders in the Arab region with a key opportunity to capitalise on readily available expertise in food safety science research.

The AFSS Platform was officially launched in partnership with the Association of Arab Universities (AArU) as well as other regional partners including the Arab Science and Technology Foundation (ASTF), and the International Life Science Institute – Middle East (ILSI).
