Brussels, Belgium
Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre


The programme is available here.


Total Diet Studies (TDS) are a public health tool used to determine population-wide exposure to both beneficial and harmful chemical substances in the diet, analysing foods as consumed. TDS-Exposure is a four-year FP7-funded Collaborative (Research) Project with 26 partners from 19 countries, and led by Agence Nationale de Sécurité sanitaire de l’alimentation, de l’Environnement et du travail (ANSES, FR).

The workshop aimed to:

  • Update on the state-of-the-art in total diet studies
  • Information about what is happening in Europe with respect to total diet studies
  • Appreciate the importance of better data for better decision making
  • Understand why participants are/ are not in favour of total diet studies
  • Explore what information participants are seeking from TDS
  • Obtain feedback about TDS-Exposure activities and results
  • Determine what steps can be taken to ensure applicability of TDS-Exposure outputs
  • Ensure dissemination channels are optimised


Registration was open only to TDS-Exposure partners and invited stakeholders from academia, industry and the public sector.
