The main goal of this training school organised by the BeSafeBeeHoney COST Action will be the creation and transfer of key knowledge on risk assessment procedures in the honey value chain. The trainees will gain knowledge and practical skills in analytical tools for determination of contaminants in complex matrices, since sample preparation techniques to LC-MS detection, and how to concept, design, implement and assess the risk of human exposure to such contaminants. As outputs, it is expected to promote a scale-up career development and the idea of interdisciplinary research when it comes to joining honey and by-products production, their nutritional and medicinal properties in correlation with the main threats that honeybee colonies are facing and might be in the near future along with the impact that those situations can create in agro-systems.

The program includes three days of practical exercises and lectures. The detailed program will be provided to registered participants in due time.
