Research Supporting Quantitative Risk Assessments for Complex Food Borne Hazards

Start date
2005
End date
2007
Objective
Research supporting quantitative risk assessments for complex food borne hazards centres on improved quantification of uncertainties, improved understanding of complexities and stronger support for communication and management of information. It concerns the development of strong mathematical descriptions, and improved quantitative understanding, for the hazards and risks that are associated with food consumption.

A secondary development involves construction of a consistent framework, and a range of user- friendly tools, that facilitates strong communications between IFR food safety research expertise and appropriate stakeholders. Additionally we aim to provide a basis for embracing, and targeting, IFR food safety research and continued food safety data acquisition.
