Discussions focused on industrial safety, the impact of ongoing and past SAF€RA projects and the Dutch national initiative “Sustainable Safety 2030”. This programme aims to enhance cooperation between the chemical industry, scientific institutes, universities and policy makers from (safety) authorities and inspectorates. Speakers discussed the highlights and importance of the programme in the Netherlands, the perspectives of Dutch industry, and developments in Europe on sustainable safety. The symposium concluded with a round table and interactive discussion with SAF€RA members to explore whether the Dutch initiative can drive and benefit European industrial safety.
