About the event

In 2023, the ILSI Europe Packaging Materials Task Force decided to determine if there is a need for a document comparing risk assessment and risk management (RA/RM) approaches and to determine if there are possible routes for harmonization of different approaches so that everyone (authorities and industry etc.) will use the same or similar methodology regarding the assessment of the safety of Food Contact Materials (FCMs). The objective of this workshop is to assess the possibility of publishing guidelines for harmonised risk assessment and management and whether this is achievable.

Programme

The workshop will include general presentation, breakout discussions, plenary debriefing and lunch.

On the second day, three discusions will run in parallel :

  1. Can hazard driven approaches be harmonized?
  2. Can exposure driven approaches be harmonized?
  3. How can risks from FCMs be best managed and what are the best approaches to message the general public?

You can indicate your preferred discussion group upon registration.

Registration

Limited seats available!
Preference will be given to applicants who can contribute their expertise and experiences to the workshop. Please note that this is not a training session.

General admission fee: 60 EUR per participant (lunch included).

Venue

The workshop will be held at the ILSI Europe office in Brussels.

About the event

Global Engage is pleased to announce the 12th Microbiome, Probiotics & Prebiotics R&D and Business Collaboration Forum, which is confirmed to be held on April 23-24 2024 in The Netherlands and co-located with the 6th Skin Microbiome & Cosmeceuticals Congress.

This world-renowned event which attracted 265 industry, academic, and investment leaders last year, enables the discussion of the most scientific cutting-edge microbiome, probiotics and skin-based research; the challenges and opportunities in translating research towards commercialisation, and partnerships and collaborations that secure investment. With 3 conferences and 8 tracks, there is ample content to learn from top scientists, network and broaden your connections and should you wish showcase your work in the poster presentation sessions or get involved in the interactive panel and roundtable discussions.

ILSI Europe session

A session will present the work of the ILSI Europe expert group on Prebiotics and Cognition commissionned by the Prebiotics Task Force.

Track: Gut Brain Axis
Session time: Tuesday 23rd April 2024 | 12:40 - 13:10
Session title: Prebiotics and Cognition - A Review and Future Directions for Human Intervention Studies
Prebiotics have been tested in preclinical and human intervention studies for their effects on cognition. In this presentation, these studies are reviewed together with a list of recommendations to move the field forward. Specifically, we stress the need to perform studies in healthy participants that test the potential "rescuing" effects of prebiotics under conditions where cognition may be transiently compromised. Ultimately, such studies would allow better estimation of the magnitude.
Speaker: Franco Ruiz, PhD Student at KU Leuven (Laboratory for Brain-Gut Axis Studies (LaBGAS), Translational Research for Gastrointestinal Disorders (TARGID) division, Department of Chronic and Metabolic Diseases)
