The Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS) is an annual international conference for discussion of innovative technologies and partnerships to enhance translation of basic science into regulatory applications within the global context. The conference provides an opportunity for scientists from government, industry, and academic research communities to objectively assess the utility of emerging technologies (such as nanotechnology, imaging, -omics for translational science, personalised medicine, medical product safety and food safety) for addressing regulatory research questions and to discuss the best way to translate these technologies into real-world applications.

The conference provides a platform where regulators, policy makers and bench scientists from various countries can exchange views on how to develop, apply and implement innovative methodologies into regulatory assessments in their respective countries, as well as harmonising strategy via global collaboration. To engage the global community in addressing regulatory science research and training needs, GSRS will be held in different countries on an annual basis. 

The 13th Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS23) will be held on 27-28 September 2023 in Parma, Italy. It is being co-hosted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Global Coalition for Regulatory Science Research (GCRSR). The theme for this year’s Global Summit is “Emerging Technologies for Food and Drug Safety”.

Please note that there will be two parallel satellite workshops on the afternoon of 26 September. Their theme will be new approach methodologies (NAMs) approaches for nanomaterials and the present and future of AI, for open science and transparency in regulatory science. The online registration tool will allow you to register for one of the workshops and the GSRS conference.  

Objectives of the event

  • To engage with the global community of regulatory risk assessors
  • To discuss new developments in emerging technologies and their applicability for regulatory risk assessment
