The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) have signed a memorandum of understanding around food safety.
DTU Food and CFSA will exchange experience and work together in risk assessment, monitoring of risks and risk communication, and nutritional studies and evaluations.
The organizations will set up shared research programmes, exchange research results and provide supplementary education courses within relevant fields.
Jørgen Schlundt, director of DTU Food, said the agreement benefits 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.”
