Scientific research at Evira to focus on food safety and animal health


<p>The Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira has specified its scientific research policy, considered by the agency’s Scientific Research Council. Evira’s scientific research must comply with high scientific standards and have an influence on society.</p>

The scientific research policy covers the two main themes of scientific research at Evira: food safety and the related nutrition research and animal health and welfare. In addition, Evira has launched scientific risk assessment related to plant health.

The policy also emphasises networking of researchers, and their contacts with international and domestic universities and research institutions. Evira’s diverse reference laboratory activities provide an excellent channel for networking with international scientific research and joint projects.
