Food Safety Skills Fund

The safefood Food Safety Skills Fund enables safefood Knowledge Network members to enhance their skills, broaden their expertise and create linkages between those involved in food safety on the island of Ireland. Members can visit other laboratories, attend conferences, centres of excellence and other training events that are food safety related. safefood strongly promotes cross-border and cross-sectoral exchanges and visits.

The overall purpose of the Knowledge Network is to;

  • Create linkages between those involved in food safety on the island of Ireland
  • Bring together those involved in creating and applying knowledge to support and enhance food safety
  • Contribute to policy development and to the knowledge economy
