Food Quality and Safety

Assuring chemical and microbiological safety and improving quality in the European food supply chain is of primary importance.

Research in this field includes understanding the links between microbial ecology and food safety; developing methods and models addressing the integrity of the food supply chains; and new detection methods, traceability, technologies and tools for risk assessment, including emerging risks, management and communication, as well as enhancing the understanding of risk perception.
