Workshop – June 2010

Contaminants in food and feed

Joint CONffIDENCE/BIOCOP session

Session 8: Emerging technology for food safety assessment (BioCop, CONffIDENCE)

10 June 2010

Organised by

ICC Austria in the framework of the 2nd International MONIQA Conference

This session is supported by the European Commission funded Integrated Projects:

FOOD-CT-2004-06988 “BIOCOP (New Technologies to Screen Multiple Chemical Contaminants in Foods)” coordinated by Queen’s University (Belfast, UK)
FP7-211326-CP “CONffIDENCE (Contaminants in Food and Feed: Inexpensive Detection for Control of Exposure)” coordinated by RIKILT – Institute of Food Safety (Wageningen, The Netherlands)

The 2nd International MONIQA conference held on 8-10 June in Krakow-Poland, was an inter- and cross-disciplinary event which formed a bridge between the daily concerns of citizens, economic considerations and food and nutrition science.

The session 8 chaired by Hans van Egmond, featured results from the related projects BioCop and CONffIDENCE which increased the cross-fertilisation of ideas and ultimately helped deliver greater benefits to stakeholders around the world. Hans van Egmond started the session with a brief introduction about the context. Then the CONffIDENCE key outputs were presented through 4 lectures listed here after.
