Rubab Fatima Bangash, TecnATox member, has obtained her PhD degree. The thesis entitled: "ANALYSIS OF CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON HYDROLOGICAL ECOSYSTEM SERVICES AND WATER ALLOCATION IN WATER SCARCE MEDITERRANEAN RIVER BASINS" was directed by Dr. Marta Schuhmacher and co-directed by Dr. Ana Passuello.
TecnATox members have prepared a external scientific report for EFSA entitled: "Extensive Literature Search (ELS) on the bioavailability of selected trace elements in animal nutrition: Incompatibilities and interactions" The main objective of this ELS was to identify the bioavailability of trace element (Co, Cu, I, Fe, Mn, Mo, Se, and Zn) additives and their incompatibilities and interactions, in particular when combined with other feed additives or components of the animal diet.
