ISO-FOOD Spring School on Food Authentication by Isotope and Elemental Fingerprinting, 4-7 April 2017
The spring school was organized for national stakeholders to get acquainted with the potential of isotope and elemental analyses for determination of authenticity, geographical origin and production practice (conventional vs. organic) of foods of plant and animal origin.
Prof. dr. Radmila Milačič, assist. prof. dr. Tea Zuliani, Janja Vidmar and Gregor Pavec attended the Second Slovenian congress on waters where the importance of the protection of water eco-systems was emphasized and the effectiveness and deficiency of the water management in Slovenia was critically evaluated.

CENAM (Mexico) and JSI (Slovenia) successfully finished a key comparison CCQM-K127 in Category 13 (sediments, soils, ores, and particulates). Two soil samples were used in CCQM-K127 representing a non-contaminated soil with low concentrations of elements As, Cd, Fe, Pb and Mn, and a contaminated soil with higher concentration of elements As, Cd, Fe and Pb.
The ERA Chair ISO-FOOD “ERA CHAIR FOR ISOTOPE TECHNIQUES IN FOOD QUALITY, SAFETY AND TRACEABILITY” at Jožef Stefan Institute aims at strengthening its research excellence related to organic contaminants in food.
ERA Chair for isotope techniques in food quality, safety and traceability (ISO-FOOD) organizes a spring school on application of isotope and elemental analyses in food analysis for determination of its origin and authenticity. The school will take place on April 4-7, 2017, and is dedicated to national stakeholders.
