Knowledge Network

Would you benefit from connecting with other professionals working in the food chain across the island of Ireland?

A knowledge network

We are pleased to introduce our Knowledge Network, open to all food safety professionals throughout the food chain on the island of Ireland.

The aim of safefood Knowledge Network is to identify new risks, and emerging challenges, and facilitate more rapid dissemination of information and ideas right across the food chain. The Knowledge Network brings together those involved in creating and applying knowledge to support and enhance food safety and contribute to policy development and to the knowledge economy. Membership is made up of those working in a wide range of sectors including academic research, regulators, retail and food production.

The Knowledge Network offers a range of services to its members.

There is an active online portal consisting of news, resources and discussions which is updated regularly by the Network Co-ordinator and other members. 

Events organised by the Knowledge Network provide an important networking opportunity for members to meet and create linkages with other organisations.

Members are also sent a tri-annual newsletter, The Food Chain, providing a further rich source of information as well as a tri-weekly news update (Network News). The newsletters typically include conference reviews, summaries of new research, insights into the impact of new legislations and interviews with industry figures.

If you would like to participate and connect with other food safety professionals then sign up by visiting the Knowledge Network and filling in your details.
