Work Package 2 (WP2): Reinforcing the research capacities

One of the main objectives of the project: reinforcing of the laboratories for scientific research is going to be fulfilled by this work package. A detailed specification of the equipment to be purchased (a liquid chromato­graph coupled to a mass spectrometer, two HPLC-UV Vis DAD systems, one with additional refractive index detector, preparative LC pump, UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer, rotary evaporator) will be done by the project manager, WP2 leaders and the Scientific Advisory Board members in the second month of the project. Advanced tendencies in applying these techniques in food analysis will be considered in order to decide to get the most comprehensive instrumentation for the desired applica­tions.
The final decision for purchasing the equipment will be made by the research team from each institution (on recommendation of the Scientific Advisory Board) based on the received offers from the suppliers of analytical instrumentation and on previously defined criteria for relevance. This activity is planned for the second trimester of the project and the contract with the supplier of the instrumentation should be signed in the 6th month of the project.
Installing the equipment is planned to take place from the 10th to the 12th month.
