From 2006 to 2008, Clare participated in the European Union research project (STREPS no FP6-518451) with Wageningen University, TNO Quality of Life, the Federal Research Institute for Nutrition & Food, and University College Dublin. The project focused on developing a Stakeholders Guide to assess the vulnerability of food & feed chains to dangerous agents & substances. A key activity was creating a new risk assessment method to evaluate the supply chain of farmed Atlantic Salmon for food safety contaminant vulnerabilities. This included assessing traceability & documentation failures, as well as detecting contaminants. The project successfully identified several food fraud activities
