Maps Group will automate the systematic review process of scientific literature carried out by EFSA.

Maps Group, together with EcoMole s.r.o., TenWise B.V. and Charité Universitaetsmedizin Berlin, will deal with automating the Systematic Review process of scientific literature carried out by the European Food Safety Authority using Artificial Intelligence techniques.


Reducing times and costs

“We continue and extend our collaboration with a high standing client such as EFSA, confirming ourselves as a reference player to also support other European agencies in the application of AI technologies for processing scientific data”.

These are the words of Maurizio Pontremoli, CEO of MAPS.

“Through this new four-year project, we will provide a significant contribution in order to generate benefits in terms of reducing the times and costs associated with the activity carried out by the Agency”.


Improving the Systematic Review process

Ever since its establishment in 2002, at the forefront of ensuring the safety of food and of the food chain and, consequently, the protection of the health of European consumers, EFSA’s scientific data collection and analysis activities are based on the use of the Systematic Review methods.

A rigorous, expensive and wasteful process in terms of human resources, the current methods are approaching their limits in the face of the growing amount of data provided by current scientific research.

The application of AI-based technologies will allow streamlining the Systematic Review process without compromising the effectiveness and preciseness of the decisions made based on the results obtained.


MAPS and the Future

With the expertise acquired in the field of extracting value from data, MAPS will therefore provide its technological solutions to support EFSA in:

  • expressing its potential in the best possible way;
  • guiding its strategic choices.

For a future focusing on citizens and consumers, and their safety.
