Improvement of methods for the characterisation and monitoring of mineral or organic contaminants in soil and plants, and biological agents that may contaminate the food chain, from the field to the final product.

Exploitation of a network of fields for studying multi-contamination in real conditions and conducting long-term experiments.

Improving know-how on the sources and processes that lead to the contamination of plants and harvests, to improve diagnostics and risk forecasting tools.

Creation of resources for technical teaching, training, and agricultural advice, and the dissemination of results to professionals.

This RMT started in January 2014 for a period of five years and follows on from the Quasaprove RMT (2008-2013). Focused on the agricultural side for this period, the partners decided on its scope of activity for the new accreditation, taking into account the future of contaminants after processing. This RMT has since been accredited by both the ACTA and ACTIA networks.


This RMT's programme has the following scientific, technical and educational focus:

Systemic approach to the risk of the multi-contamination of field crops by experimental development on a network of fields.

Securing approaches to integrated protection and management of the risk of contamination during storage and conservation.

The future of contaminants during technological processing and through the consumer (animal or human).
