Last Updated on Wednesday, 15 February 2017 11:47


The 2016 Annual General Meeting of the SAFE consortium took place in two parts. Part 1 was on 13 MAY 2016 by Teleconference and Part 2 on 21 OCTOBER 2016 at the SAFE Annual Event: a workshop on Safe Food for the Future at the Food Factory 2016 Conference in Laval France.

The SAFE AGM genereally brings together one or two representatives from each member institute and 2016 was no exception.. SAFE activities and finances in the previous year were reviewed and SAFE plans and budget for 2017 was discussed. Decisions were made by consensus or majority vote. You can find the agenda and minutes of the 2016 AGM and of previous AGMs on the SAFE Members Only pages, Past Events.

The SAFE Annual General Meeting  took place in two parts this year:

Part 1 on Friday 13 May by teleconference (Lync). Here, the 2015 budget was closed and 2016 budget approved. Financial documents were sent to all confirmed participants and questions invited by email.

Part 2 on Friday 21 October at the SAFE Annual Event. The Annual Event was a ½ day workshop on ‘Safe Food for the Future’ as part of the 3 day Food Factory 2016 conference in Laval France. More information on the SAFE Event and on the conference as a whole is available on the SAFE website, Past Events. The SAFE workshop was the morning of 21 Oct and Part II of the AGM the afternoon.

The SAFE AGM was originally planned for 13 May in Brussels. However, due to the difficulty of travelling to Brussels at that time, the schedule was changed to the rather unusual one above.

The SAFE statutes specify that the General Meeting of the Members is the supreme governing body of the SAFE consortium. Come and have your voice included!
