Project description:

RASCS is a project focusing on Knowledge exchange between "knowledge sharing" organizations, within the field of contaminants in seafood. It is expected that RASCS promotes and improves capacity building of the 7 participating institutions, therefore improving the capacity of 6 EU countries in Risk Assessment and Risk Communication: Italy, Portugal, France, Germany, Belgium and Spain.

The expectation of RASCS is to go beyond KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE, and promote analysis of current methodologies and approaches regarding Risk Assessment and Risk Communication of contaminants in seafood to increase the preparedness to face future impacts and challenges. By doing so, the impact of the consortium's institutions will be optimized and EFSA, and EU member states, will be provided our vision of future strategies in the EU on these topics.

Specific aims:

  • Hazard identification - exemplified by regulated and non-regulated contaminants in seafood (WP1).
  • Dietary Exposure Assessment (WP2)
  • Risk assessment: current and future strategies in a changing world and balance with nutritional benefits (WP3)
  • Assessment/improvement of risk/benefit perception and communication (WP4).
  • Dissemination and outreach (WP5)
