Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

EFSA’s scientific expertise and capacity consists of the members of the Scientific Panels, the Scientific Committee, their Working Groups, and the Authority’s own scientific staff as well as the scientists in Member State institutions working with EFSA. The overall objective of this project was to organize and deliver high quality training courses to meet the needs identified by EFSA to implement Expert Knowledge Elicitation (EKE) approach for quantifying uncertainty in food safety risk assessment. As outcome of the project a training course was developed on ‘Steering an Expert KnowledgeElicitation’. The course covered two working days and was conducted three times during the year 2015. The three courses had 73 participants in total, whereof 17 EFSA experts, 50 EFSA Staff and 6 Network members. This report contains a summary of the project, a technical description of the training, the final curriculum, the training materials, results from evaluation of the course by the participants, and recommendations for future training on this subject.
