European Network for Chemical Elemental Analysis by Total Reflection X-Ray Fluorescence
The main aims and objectives of the Action is to coordinate the efforts made at the national and transnational level to establish total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) as a reference technique for reliable elemental analysis of solid and liquid matrices, for the purposes of both fast screening and accurate quantitative determination. These objectives will be achieved via the development of a strong TXRF network, building capacity by training, connecting and involving stakeholders.
COST provides networking opportunities for researchers and innovators in order to strengthen Europe’s capacity to address scientific, technological and societal challenges. There are three strategic priorities: promoting and spreading excellence, fostering interdisciplinary research for breakthrough science and empowering and retaining young researchers and innovators.
Cost Action CA18130
The Enforce TXRF Action aims to coordinate research and building capacity in the field of elemental analysis by total reflection X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (TXRF) to develop and assess new tools, protocols, methodologies, and instrumentation for screening and accurate determination of potentially toxic elements, for health and safety reasons.
