Prof.Dr. Hans Verhagen

About me

 

I have over 37 years of professional experience in the area of food safety and nutrition. I worked at Universities (Nijmegen, Maastricht, Ulster, Copenhagen), in contract research (TNO), in industry (Unilever), for the national (RIVM) and international government (EFSA), and I was editor-in-chief twice. I am a visiting professor at the University of Ulster (Northern Ireland) since 2009 and at the Technical University Denmark (DTU, Denmark) since 2021. 

My strength is that I have the unique and rare combination of being both a board-certified toxicologist and board-certified nutritionist.

After my retirement from EFSA in 2020, I became the founder and owner of Food Safety & Nutrition Consultancy
