The COST Action CA 18130 "European Network for Chemical Elemental Analysis by Total reflection X-Ray Fluorescence" [1], acronym ENFORCE-TXRF, 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, as well as nutrients and beneficial ones for quality control. This Action will create an infrastructure for scientific communication, exchange, collaboration, to enhance technical standards, advance measurement science, fostering new research activities and combining the partners’ expertise in chemistry, physics, life science and engineering. This network will provide the information and tools to maximize European competitiveness in forming and attracting talented scientists, supporting new sources and capabilities that improve research productivity, quality, dissemination, efficiency, and career development. The outcome is a novel technology portfolio for TXRF applications that will benefit science, economy and the society. The activities will enable breakthrough scientific developments leading to new concepts and products, increasing Europe’s research and innovation capacities, and supporting European Commission regulation organizations in crucial fields as environmental protection, food safety, life science, and nanotechnologies. ENFORCE TXRF will create well-organized and sustainable partnerships, preparatory to joint projects by dissemination of scientific knowledge and actively engaging new stakeholders. The Action will attract the next generation of scientists, ensuring that Europe will remain at the frontline of research for the development of new tools for the chemical analysis. ENFORCE-TXRF has formally started on March 13th 2019 with the first Managing Committee meeting and will remain in force for the next 4 years.
