Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation in Support of Mass Spectrometry and related techniques in Health, the Environment, and Food Analysis, 1.1.2016-31.12.2018, HORVAT MILENA

The objective of the twinning project is to improve the mass-spectrometry based analytical skills of researchers and to adopt best practices comparable to the world‘s leading laboratories..

This will be achieved through a series of exchange visits between the participating laboratories, exploratory workshops, group trainings and collaborative research in the field of health, food and environmental  sciences.  The scientific content of the project is complementary to the activities of the  ISO-FOOD ERA Chair.
