FOOD METROLOGY: APPROACHES AND TOOLS FOR MEASURING FOOD QUALITY

Sala Convegni c/o Area della Ricerca di via A. Corti 12 - Milano

Food Metrology Food Metrology is an emerging area of scientific, industrial and social interest, which addresses the challenge of traceable measurements of food constituents and contaminants in food matrices, by developing standardized procedures and suitable reference materials to insure full traceability of values to SI Units. The available methods and tools include: high-quality reference standards, validated methods, robust sampling practices, proven calibration approaches, reference materials in natural matrix, speciation chemistry, assessment of measurement uncertainty, establishment of traceability links and proficiency testing.

The workshop, organized by CNR – Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche and INRiM – Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica, is part of a series of discussions that the EU Scientific Steering Committee for Expo 2015 is following during the course of the six months of the Expo. The results of the conference will feed into a process, by the end of which there will be widely consulted recommendations to provide to decision makers on future priorities for research, development and innovation in the food and agricultural sector.

The main objectives of the workshop are: to provide the scientific community and groups of interest with the state of the art of existing metrology approaches for food quality assessment, to present food analysis areas where metrological approaches need to be incorporated, in order to enhance the reliability of the measurement process, and to stimulate discussion about the needs and the development areas in food metrology.

For organizational reasons, registration is appreciated.
