A very productive WP2 meeting with a high impact on the MercOx project delivery was hold at the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry
in Pau France (2-8 February 2019). The meeting was mainly focused on the achievements in the area of traceable Hg(II) determinations, including method development and validation, with a clear link to the development of primary Hg(II) gas standard. In-depth scientific research discussions led to new ideas and proposals for fruitful partners’ collaboration. The meeting was preceded by a platform lecture at the conference, given by the project coordinator Prof. Milena Horvat. The lecture promoted MercOx project at international level and registered very high interest from the audience.
Additionally, a number of posters demonstrating the work on accurate Hg determination were presented by the project participants, including in collaboration with stakeholders. The conference audience was estimated to exceed 500 scientist and industry representatives.
