EMN for Safe and Sustainable Food webinar for World Metrology Day 2023

The webinar, organised and hosted by INRiM, covers topics supporting the global food system and is available to watch online


World Metrology Day is organised by Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) and Organisation Internationale de Métrologie Légale (OIML) and marks the anniversary of the signing of the Metre Convention on 20th May 1875. This year’s theme ‘Measurements supporting the global food system’ highlights the increasing challenges of climate change and the need for global distribution of food.


To mark the day, INRiM, Italy’s National Metrology Institute, organised and held a webinar with a focus on the European Metrology Network for Safe and Sustainable Food, covering topics on this year’s theme, which has been made free to view online.

EURAMET’s EMN Food exists to foster collaboration and coordination across the metrology community to support the provision of safe, high-quality food and protection of the environment.

“The aim of the network is to promote a harmonised approach to food measurements, reference materials and standards which will allow NMI and DIs across Europe to respond to stakeholders and regulations with confidence and quality,” says EMN Food’s acting chair, Andrea Rossi. “We would like to create one voice for Europe to drive metrology in the food safety and sustainability field.”

The event’s programme includes nine talks on topics including mycotoxins, food allergens, food contaminants and more, presented by experts from across Europe.

Talks cover:

  • Initiatives for coordinating metrology in the European agrifood sector and for supporting food safety and sustainability
  • Ongoing activities around developing and validating analytical methods to characterise specific food matrices
  • Developing methods for quantifying key food contaminants
