Aim of the event is to provide an opportunity to PhD students of the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague to be trained in advanced analytical strategies applied for food safety, authenticity and quality assessment. Various case studies will be presented, including analytical methods development, data evaluation, QA/QC, … Participants will have an opportunity to meet up with the experts and learn more from other young colleagues in order to network and discuss on their current and future research activities. They will also be informed about activities of EIT Food aimed at supporting students and entrepreneurial talents. To register for participation in this event, please contact Martina Vlckova (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Prof. Jana Hajslova and her PhD student Aris Tsagkaris demonstrated the rapid and simple screening test for selected pesticide residues (organophosphates and carbamates) detection which is being developed within the Horizon 2020 project FoodSmartphone. You can see the news report on TV PRIMA here or the stream on facebook here .
The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) participates in the new Horizon 2020 ITN project: FoodSmartphone - Smartphone analyzers for on-site testing of food quality and safety (Grant Agreement: 720325 – FoodSmartphone - H2020-MSCA-ITN) coordinated by Prof. Dr. Michel Nielen RIKILT Wageningen University & Research. The project will run from January 1, 2017, until December 31, 2020.
The consortium has been built upon highly complementary disciplines: (bio)analytical chemists, biologists, physicists, micro/nano-engineers, mathematicians, organic- and food chemists will work together on the joint supra-disciplinary goal.
FoodSmartphone offers the ESRs (early-stage researchers) an extensive programme of both mandatory and optional network-wide training events and intersectoral secondments. The scientific training in novel smartphone-based sensing technologies plus the complementary skills training provided, will have a major impact on future EU monitoring practices and, moreover, pave the road for Citizen Science.

Prague – The Department of Food Analysis and Nutrition at the University of Chemical Technology, Prague, led by Professor Jana Hajslova, became Europe’s first laboratory for medical cannabis products to receive Patient Focused Certification (PFC), a quality standard issued by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) Cannabis monograph.
The only other five certified laboratories in the world are all located in the USA.
"PFC serves both government authorities and end users. It guarantees that medical cannabis products have the strength, composition, purity, and identity they claim to constitute or possess," said Dr. Jahan Marcu, chief auditor for Americans for Safe Access Foundation (ASAF).
"This is the first laboratory which passed certification with flying colors. Industrial and academic laboratories in the United States could learn from Professor Hajslova," he added at a talk at UCT Prague’s Department of Food Analysis and Nutrition.
ASA works closely with the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute (ICCI), a center of excellence for cannabis and cannabinoids research initiated to share experiences in clinical and basic research, medical informatics, administration, legislative efforts and studies, product security protocols, and the production and distribution of cannabis products.
