Risk-Benefit assessment & Multicriteria analysis

Risk-Benefit assessment & Multicriteria analysis

Risk-benefit assessment (RBA) has emerged over the last decade to consider not only the risks associated with food consumption but also the benefits, in the microbiological, nutritional and toxicological fields. Secalim is recognized in this field at the international level and participates in a European network: RISKBENEFIT4EU.Secalim is also participating in an EFSA project, NovRBA, on the risk-benefit assessment associated with the consumption of insect proteins as a replacement for red meat (see ongoing projects). Risk-Benefit assessement and multicriteria analysis are highly connected to risk assessment but integrate other scientific domains. Therefore they are included in thematic 1: Assess the safety risk.

PhD theses supervised in this topic:

Two theses were supervised by Secalim, one devoted to the risk-benefit evaluation associated with the consumption of infant milk in the first six months of children's life, and the second, on the risk-benefit evaluation associated with consumption of red meat.
