Sciensano is the Belgian institute for health and focuses on the close and indissoluble interconnection between human and animal health and their environment (the “One health” concept). Sciensano is convinced that monitoring and protecting the ecosystems, on the one hand, and controlling the animal and plant diseases, on the other hand, are crucial to safeguard public health, the food chain and the environment. Sciensano is deeply committed to mitigating the impact of changes (e.g. globalisation, climate changes, changes in travelling habits or intensive farming and agricultural practices, etc.) on health and the environment. Involved with the heavy metal, flame retardants and Arsenic detection in (sea)food and sediments of the Belgian part of the North Sea.
