To strengthen the competences in scientific activities of the project partners, the training and exchange program was developed at the beginning of the project and is continuously updated according to the research needs of each partner to reach a maximal gain in an expertise improvement.

Acquirement of new knowledge and enhancement of attendees´ competence(s) in the specific research area will lead to improving the competition of the trainees on the job market in both research and business areas and will help the participants to realize their own research ideas in the future.

Topics of delivered trainings:

  • Marine bioprospecting and bioactive compounds for health
  • The use of ion mobility for separation of mycotoxins
  • Application of ion mobility in food analysis
  • Pesticide residues analysis
  • Rapid evaporative ionisation mass spectrometry (REIMS)
  • Advanced mass spectrometric techniques in the analysis of emerging anabolic drugs in sports and food producing animals
  • Application of metabolomics in food / feed analysis
  • Untargeted metabolomic analysis of chicken samples using the DART-HRMS
  • Microcystin-LR metabolomics
  • Plant metabolomics
  • Toxicity testing
  • High Content Analysis
  • Application of infrared spectroscopy for food authentication
  • Analysis of bio-hazards in foods
  • Scientific writing
