Dear friends, colleagues, scientists,

I took over the MoniQA presidency from Dr. Bert Popping and I am pleased to announce that I will act as MoniQA President for the coming period 2021-2022. Due to the restrictions of the pandemic, we did not manage to meet in person but in the meanwhile we have intensively worked within the Association and met frequently to pave the way for future activities within MoniQA Association.

Recently MoniQA supervisory board has been renewed with two new members joining, Dr Kristie Laurvick (FCC, US) and Prof. Maria De Angelis (University of Bari) the current supervisory board: Thomas Gude (Deputy President), Bert Popping (Past President), Richard Cantrill and Cesare Varallo. We are already hands on to launch future intitiatives within the Association; setting up WGs focused on the hottest topics/analytical challenges encompassing methods for detection of food allergens, mycotoxins, food authenticity, Covid detection, microbiome analysis etc;

These topics will form part of the forthing MoniQA virtual event to be held on September 2021; strenghtening collaboration and interaction with international bodies / organization for method harmonization.

If you are a stakeholder in the food industry, patient groups, laboratories, assay providers and equipment manufacturers or academic institution join the Association to get the chance to contribute to the activities and initiatives to be shortly launched by this non-profit organization. Come on board and join MoniQA!

I wish you a fruitful and prosperous time together,
