Our organisation

Hochschule Fresenius (HSF) has been state-recognised by the Hessian Ministry of Science and the Arts for an unlimited period since 1971 and is both institutionally accredited by the German Council of Science and Humanities and system-accredited by the German Accreditation Council. It is currently organised into five faculties. The oldest and strongest research department, Chemistry & Biology (FB C&B), focuses on analytics and life sciences. Research in the C&B faculty has a special international reputation in the fields of “Water as a Resource” and “Aquatic Ecosystems”. HSF, with the Institute for Analytical Research (IFAR), has proven expertise in the fields of environmental analysis, forensics, and risk assessment of chemicals and materials. With its participation in national and international projects, usually in co-operation with project partners, HSF has an extensive network and comprehensive project management expertise.

Our role in the project

Within SSbD4CheM, HSF will coordinate WP3 and develop methods for VOC analysis for materials and products. The focus here is on target and non-target approaches. Further, HSF will contribute to the implementation of the SSbD framework and the assessment of the environmental fate of materials and chemicals relevant to SSbD4CheM.
