Capacity building

SAFOSO together with the Swiss partners University of Bern and the Swiss Federal Veterinary Office signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Hokkaido University, Japan, to support Japan in building capacities in risk analysis for animal health and food safety.

As part of this project, SAFOSO hosts Japanese postdoc students for several months and provides hands-on training in risk assessment. During their stay at SAFOSO, trainees work on their own risk assessment project and are supervised by SAFOSO staff. Following their stay at SAFOSO, trainees may be hosted by other partners.
