  • Sampling
  • Non-targeted approaches (screening, fingerprinting, profiling, barcoding, omicstechnologies)
  • Targeted approaches (detection, identification and quantification of organic compounds)
  • Rapid testing and on-site applications (sensors, biosensors)
  • Bioinformatics (processing, recycling, sharing, storage)
  • Risk assessment

‘The Symposium will bring together both established and young researchers in academia, public and industrial laboratories involved in the field of environmental and food analytics and hard ware  manufacturers involved in the development and distribution of analytical instrumentation relevant for this interdisciplinary field.’
