Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The Envirotrace network was established in 1993 within the frame of the programme Human Capital and Mobility. It contains 14 leading laboratories in environmental analytical chemistry, whose research goal is the development and improvement of methods for assessment of pollutants in, air, water, soil and waste deposits and the study of selected ecosystems. This network of laboratories with different and complementary knowledge and research profiles provides excellent opportunities for training young researchers. Training is performed through incorporation of the fellows into the concerted research activities of the network. This brochure presents the major research - and therefore training - areas covered by the Envirotrace activities. It concentrates on the work, which has a rather direct relation to international exchange taking place within this programme. In other words, a focus is placed on scientific activities which have to some extent profited from the establishment of the network, particularly through the cooperation between scientists for involvement in research activities of the host laboratory, and through the cooperation between scientists of different institutions on various topics.
