to give recommendations

to give recommendations to be incorporated in the Belgian food safety control program. The organization of an international symposium during the Belgian EU Presidency in collaboration with the EC and the EFSA was considered to be an excellent opportunity for contributing to the European debate between stakeholders, public, politicians and policy regulators. This symposium on “Nanotechnology in the Food Chain: Opportunities & Risks” presents the current knowledge regarding the applications, opportunities and risks of nanotechnology in the food chain (“from farm to fork”), with a notice for the remaining gaps in knowledge, legislation and control. The proceedings present the abstracts of presentations held and posters presented during the symposium in Brussels on 24 November 2010. Finally, the FASFC wishes to thank the EC and EFSA for the successful cooperation during the organization of this event, the theme of which being of major importance and of pertinent interest as is indicated by the international character of the participants list.
