China And Denmark Collaborate On Food Safety

The MOU between the Chinese and Danish food safety authorities is intended to exchange experience and promote research collaboration.

AsianScientist (May 9, 2014) – The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) have signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a platform for research collaboration between Denmark and China.

The intention is for DTU Food and CFSA to exchange experience and to work together in the fields of risk assessment, monitoring of risks and risk communication, as well as in the area of nutritional studies and evaluations. The organizations will, for example, set up shared research programs, exchange research results and provide supplementary education courses within relevant fields.

According to Jørgen Schlundt, director of DTU Food, the agreement benefits both China and Denmark.

“Our Chinese partners stand to gain from DTU Food’s experience regarding risk assessment of foods and nutritional studies, while we have the opportunity to forge strong links in the Chinese research environment,” he says.

The state visit to China is focused on promoting Danish-Chinese collaboration in a wide range of areas including those of foods and food safety.
