The scientific programme of the network will take the form of small scale collaborative actions between the partners.

The following are scientific actions that will be undertaken by the network:

  • Development of an inventory / database of existing national data / models relevant to microbial risk assessment
  • Review existing Irish risk assessment models to improve overall accuracy
  • Application of meta analysis techniques for combining multiple literature sources for prevalence and other data at critical points in the risk assessment.
  • Investigation of methodologies for formulating FSOs and associated performance objectives.
  • Modelling growth and toxin production by Staphylococcus aureus
  • Preliminary ‘data mining’ of existing consumption data bases for data relevant to risk assessment.
