Prof. Tadeusz M. Wijaszka, a former long-time director-general of the National Veterinary Research Institute (PIWet) in Puławy, is the first Pole to have joined the management board of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Based in Parma, Italy, the EFSA is an independent European food safety agency launched in 2002 and funded by the European Union. The EFSA monitors and analyzes information and data on biological hazards, chemical contaminants, food consumption and emerging risks.

The agency is governed by an independent management board whose members are appointed to act in the public interest and do not represent any government, organization or sector. The 15-member board sets the EFSA’s budget, approves the annual work program and is responsible for ensuring that the agency works effectively and cooperates successfully with partner organizations across the EU and beyond.

The EFSA’s Scientific Committee and Panels deliver scientific advice to Europe’s decision makers in areas such as food and feed safety, nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant protection and plant health.

Wijaszka is a professor at the Agricultural University of Cracow, Poland, where he teaches veterinary administration. He is also head of the University Center of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to this, he was director-general of the PIWet Institute in Puławy, a position he took in 2001.

In his earlier career as a veterinarian, Wijaszka held positions as the head of the PIWet Postgraduate Training Center and as a team leader for a joint United Nations Development Program/FAO project in Burma during the 1980s.

His academic training was at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW), where he obtained a master’s degree in 1963 and then a Ph.D. in veterinary medicine in 1972.
