Challenge 6: FoodSafety

The problem to be addressed

The problem of discovery of information for food-borne diseases, food alerts, outbreaks and recalls has been stressed as a problem with major importance by global initiatives like the Global Food Safety Partnership (GFSP) that works on improving the capacity building for food safety.

Addressing related data challenges will allow scientists to find food-borne diseases information in order to analyse and correlate the data and to create notifications about food safety issues. Apart from the data and technological enablers the most important prerequisite for applying state of the art text analysis techniques is the availability and openness of information regarding the food-borne diseases, outbreaks, food alerts and recalls.
