  • Research on the safety of national and international supply chains
  • Research on the detection of contaminants and for the assessment of chemical risks
  • Research on modern methods in toxicology
  • Research to harmonise and standardise assessments of exposure
  • Research on alternatives to animal experiments
  • Research on functional analytics and early risk detection
  • Research on feed safety
  • Research on nanotechnology: detection, toxicology, risk assessment and risk perception
  • Scientific cooperation
