Research Director’s review

Research activities carried out at the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira provide information on food safety as well as on animal health and welfare.

This information is useful in the targeting of controls, legislative drafting and the development of international standards and instructions, in risk assessments and in various lines of business, including agriculture, the food industry and improving animal welfare. Scientific research also supports the authority’s reference laboratory activities and the related methodology development.

Our newsletter showcases Evira’s research activities by providing information on events and publications.

I hope that this newsletter on our scientific research will find its niche in providing information on Finnish research.
