Project: Research project

Project Details


The Virtual Institute is meant to become the web-portal for all those, seeking information about chemical species and there determination. In order to fulfil its mission, EVISA will provide different services, meant to

promote the dissemination of information and knowledge towards industry and formulate new requirements as a feed-back from industrial demands,

to help industry to install speciation related solutions fit-for-purpose to solve real world issues,

to enhance the discussion between analytical scientists,

to improve the interdisciplinary cooperation between scientists from different fields, such as toxicology, biology, medicine, nutritional science, earth sciences, environmental sciences,

to improve the quality and traceability of speciation analysis by performing different quality related actions,

to improve the education of analytical scientists for speciation analysis and quality assurance related to speciation,

to enhance the visibility of speciation related science towards policy and rule makers by adding the European dimension,

to inform policy and rule makers about the state-of-the-art of the current academic knowledge to facilitate the establishment of most effective legislation considering the characteristics of element species,

to act as a promoter of new research strategies emerging from the realisation of speciation demands in industrial, food, health, and environmental issues.
