The academy aims to contribute to the field of food safety in Europe and beyond by offering an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to the study of this discipline. During a 1-week course, held annually, emphasis is placed on understanding the most difficult and controversial aspects of food law.
The overarching goal of the academy is to engage lawyers, junior policy makers, academics (post-doc and PhD students) with both traditional and emerging areas of food law and policy by following an innovative and interdisciplinary approach. Its programme offers an intensive exposure to practical research by relying on case studies and brain storming sessions. To achieve this overarching goal all lecturers, who are dedicated and enthusiastic about their field, are committed to use actual research questions by always keeping an eye on real life scenarios.
The EFFL Summer Academy has an academic programme stretching over a period of five days, with the option to arrive one day earlier and stay over the final weekend. Each day a morning and an afternoon session is scheduled offering ample time for informal exchange and discussions during the lunch and coffee breaks.
During the morning and the afternoon sessions a lecturer introduces a topic theoretically, before turning to the empirical applications. There is always sufficient time for Q&As and the lecturers may decide to change this structure if appropriate. Depending on the lecturer’s availability, individual meetings may be scheduled between the formal teaching sessions.
Alongside the academic sessions social activities are planned on a voluntary basis.
