The second training session of the Better Training for Safer Food project regarding “Risk Assessment of Microorganisms used as Pesticides and Biocides” will be held from the 16th to 19th April 2024. Participants coming from the EU member states, candidate countries and EEA/EFTA countries will be expected to attend the training session.

This shall also enhance competences in evaluating dossier admissibility/validity and risk assessment, and will also aim to promote, as much as possible, harmonisation of the procedures of evaluation, and authorisation of such microorganisms within the EU.
The training programme will be based on the best methodological mix available. Theoretical lectures and presentations will be combined with case studies, practical exercises and group discussion.
