The Symposium will be held in the Conference Hall “20 Maggio 2012” at the headquarters of Regione Emilia-Romagna, Viale della Fiera 8, 40127 Bologna, Italy

  • September 12th-14th 2018

The event is the most important conference on food and environmental safety in Europe and Mediterranean Countries and is the best occasion for researchers and experts to meet and compare themselves with productive realities. It aims at investigating issues related to the characterization of old and emerging contaminations, analytical techniques, risk management and mitigation techniques, as well as tackling emerging new problems such as the influence of contaminants on animal and plant microbiome, and the toxicological aspects related to cocktails of voluntary and involuntary contaminants. The accessibility of citizens to safe and nutritious food, obtained from healthy plants and animals, as well as the possibility of the industry to operate in the best possible conditions is one of the cornerstone of the European policy on food safety and environmental protection. The participation of Companies of the Agrifood sectors, analytical scientific instruments, and involved in the environmental protection in its various facets represents an added value for the congress.
