New FSA Advisory Committee for Social Science – applicants wanted

Posted by

The Food Standards Agency is calling for applicants for the new FSA Advisory Committee for Social Science. We’re seeking a Chair and members who will support and influence policy making on food standards and safety in the coming years.

This independent expert committee will provide expert strategic advice to the FSA on its use of the social sciences, including new and emerging methods, processes and systems to interrogate data, to deliver the FSA’s objectives.

Its purpose will be to help the Agency use these sciences and approaches to shape and deliver strategic objectives and understand its impact. Where needed it will work with other advisory committees to advise on how best to bring together the different types of evidence, approaches and information across diverse disciplines and fields to address strategic problems or interests.

There is more information on the Food Standards Agency website.
