The ERA Chair Iso-Food Summer School addressed the speciation of trace and toxic elements in food by providing participants with an in-depth knowledge of trace element speciation using examples of essential and non-essential elements including Cr, Zn, Ni, Hg and As to teach demonstrate the state-of-the art analytical approaches.
The lectures covered the topics of element speciation, of nanoparticle residues in food and analytical techniques. The second and third day of the school were entirely devoted to practical work in the laboratory, from sample preparation to measurement and interpretation of results. In total forty-five participants representing academia, industry and governmental and non-governmental organizations took part at the course.
