We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Two concurrent workshops on " Safety of food contact materials: migration testing and exposure assessment of chemicals in foods" will take place in Ispra from 7-8 October 2014.
Organised by the JRC's European Reference Laboratory for Food Contact Materials, these workshops are dedicated to training and exchange of information capacity building for National Reference Laboratories, Member States and stakeholders in the area of safety of food contact materials. It also includes a special opportunity for participation under EC's Enlargement & Integration activities.
