Spring College on EU Food Law

Spring!After a succesful Autumn College last year September, this 2 days event on EU Food Law is repeated under the name Spring College. The event will take place on 27 and 28 March in Brussels and offers a unique opportunity to receive a profound insight and practical understanding of the complex legal and regulatory framework on EU Food Law. By means of a interactive and informal approach, this intensive two days training provides crucial knowledge on the legal and regulatory requirements, technical standards and relevant case law regarding two specific food law subjects.

Focusing on Health and Nutrition Claims and Food Information as the subjects which are nowadays at the core of the food industry, the Spring College provides fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge thanks to a number of highly topical presentations and ample opportunity for Q&A. Following the “learning by doing” approach, each day will be concluded by a case study, where the participants will split up in small groups to actively discuss and present their solutions. This will allow for a practical understanding and the application of the issues discussed.

The lecturers are seasoned food professionals stemming from the industry, private practise and consultancy. For the case studies, “tag teams” of two lecturers, providing insights from both the private practise and industry perspective, will be operative. All lecturers will stay for an entire day, so that they will also be available for taking questions outside the slots assigned to them.

Looking forward to see you there!
