The objective of this interdisciplinary symposium is to gather experts with different backgrounds to discuss all aspects of trace elements in relation to food, with special emphasis on biological effects of elements. The topics covered include essentiality, toxicity, bioaccessibility, bioavailability, speciation, sources and transfer in the food chain, effects of processing, food fortification, supplementation, international legislation and standards, analytical developments, analytical quality assurance and reference materials. Special emphasis will be placed on research and development efforts which have taken place in the last few years as well as on emerging issues in the area.

This meeting follows the previous ones, organized in Warsaw, Poland (2000), and in Brussels, Belgium (2004). Alike the two previous meetings of this series, TEF-3 aims at being a suitable forum for new ideas and experiences to be exchanged among researchers in the trace element area with a view to providing an evidence base for policy, advice on the development of improved foods and risk-management tools to protect public health.
