University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Technology,
Centre of Excellence in Food Safety and Emerging Risks, Novi Sad, Serbia
Center of Excellence Faculty of Technology in Food Safety
and Emerging Risks
is established by reinforcement of the Laboratory for Chemical Contaminants in Food and the Environment
at the Faculty of Technology Novi Sad through the FP7 project CEFSER.
IT IS A UNIQUE WESTERN BALKAN LABORATORY Faculty of Technology
highly sophisticated analytical instruments,
collaborating with advanced EU institutions.
CEFSER integrates Faculty of Technology within the European Research Area,
general harmonization of R&D within
food safety and emerging risks research.

T Faculty of Technology Novi Sad.hrough the FP7 project CEFSER, Laboratory forChemical Contaminants at the Faculty ofTechnology has been upgraded thematerial capacitieswith two outstandinganalytical instruments:
Ultra high performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (AccelaUHPLC-TSQ Vantage MS/MS)
Ultra high performance liquid chromatography coupled coupled to high resolution mass spectrometry with Orbitrap technology(AccelaUHPLC-ExactiveMS)
Moreover, the Laboratory for Chemical Contaminants is equipped with
atomic absorption spectrometer with a graphite furnace(GTAAS, Varian AA240/GTA120), enabling the analysis of 12 heavy elements, like Cd, Pb, As, Hg, Cu, Cr, Co, Ni, Mn, etc.
RESEARCH (GC/FID, DANI GC1000)
The methods for determination of topics, including:mycotoxins and heavy elements in food developed in the CEFSER Lab are accredited.
CEFSER topics, including:Lab is a part of the Faculty’s Laboratory for Food Analysis accredited for the food analysis for third parties.
In 2 Hungarian-Serbian IPA projects: capacities include:
LACREMEDHUSRB/1002/214/147 (2012-2013; total budget: 287000 Euro), and
BIOXEN HU-SRB/0901/214/150 (2010-2011; total budget: 248000 Euro)
the research interest has been:
On-going national projects: coordination pesticides and their degradation products in soil and water,
Funding amount: 316810,00 EUR
Project gathers researchers from different institutions of various expertise due to its multidisciplinary approach :
Funding amount: 41280,00EUR
B Technological Development of the ilateral projects:
1. The project of Serbian-Spanishprogramme of scientific and technological cooperation, 2012-2013:
Advanced chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques in food chemical safety analysis
Partner: Department of Environmental Chemistry, Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research, Barcelona, Spain
Funding amount: 14000,00 EUR
This bilateral Technological Development of the cooperation represents opportunity to further advance the analytical experience of both teams knowing that the instruments available in our labs have complementary ranges of application.
2 Technological Development of the . The project of Serbian-Portugalprogramme of scientific and technological cooperation, 2011-2012:
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and biogenic amines in smoked traditionally manufactured meat products from Serbia and Portugal
(Partner: Faculty of Veterinary Medicine – Technical University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal)
Funding amount: 8000,00 EUR
Project aims at gathering significant scientific data on the food quality and safety aspects of the smoked traditionally manufactured meat products available in both countries.
Portuguese and Serbian researchers in front of the joint poster presentation during the 2nd CEFSER Workshop, 8-10 September 2011
Funding amount: 6000,00 EUR
The project objective have been determination of presence and distribution of organic and inorganic pollutants in the urban areas in order to make geochemical maps of investigated areas.
4 . The Serbian–Hungarian intergovermental S&T programme,2010-2011:
Comparison of various analytical and chemometricmethods
(Partner: Chemical Research Center - Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, Hungary)
Funding amount: 7000,00 EUR
The project enabled the share of the new achievement in chemometricsas well as the transfer of the relevant experience between the partner institutions through joint research and discussion during the meetings and conferences.
5 . The project of Serbian–Slovenian intergovermental S&T programme, 2010-2011:
Heavy metals in the environment as a consequence of the anthropogenic activities
(Partner: Geological Survey of Slovenia, Ljubljana, Slovenia)
Funding amount: 6500,00 EUR
The project objective was determination of content of heavy metals in various environmental compartments, as a consequence of anthropogenic activities.
