Irish Microbial Risk Assessment Network Objectives

The overall objective for the network is to develop a high calibre, internationally recognised, multidisciplinary network of national experts on the application of microbial quantitative risk assessment as a tool to underpin risk management actions.

The network will facilitate the generation of scientific knowledge in this emerging area of risk analysis and will address how microbial quantitative risk assessment can be used as a risk management tool to develop appropriate food safety objectives, related industry performance objectives and performance criteria for microbial pathogens of major public health concern.

The network will coordinate scientific actions to address identified knowledge gaps relevant to microbial risk assessment for the Irish food industry.
