Abstract: MoniQA (Monitoring and Quality Assurance in the total food supply chain) is a Network of Excellence (NoE) funded under the EU 6th Framework Programme. Its aim is to work towards the harmonisation of worldwide food quality and safety monitoring and control strategies by establishing durable integration of leading research institutions, industrial partners and SMEs working in complementary fields of food quality and safety analysis. One of the main objectives of the project is to ¿develop harmonisation guidelines for validation and standardisation of detection methods and technologies in food safety and quality¿. To achieve this, the relative importance of the range of contaminants and residues causing problems in food needed to be established. This paper outlines the methodologies adopted for prioritising harmonisation issues and identifying needs for research and development of analytical methods
