MycoKey Short Term Visits (STM) gives to young scientists and PhD students training opportunities on mycotoxins in high qualified Institutions. Public calls for the selection of 10 young researchers/scientists are launched through MycoKey website, dedicated newsletters and other jobs portal. The visits are divided into two periods: a first period hosted by research organizations and universities to investigate/study a specific topic, a second period hosted by industries, to apply research findings into industrial processes.

- The MycoKey project organizes training courses for students, Phd, young researchers in the field of food safety and mycotoxin management.
Several kinds of trainings are foreseen in the project, as follows:
Registration deadline: April 30, 2017
Training course on rapid detection methods, to be held in China in fall 2019 (stay tuned!)
MycoKey Training Weeks, to be held in Europe in 2019-2020 (stay tuned!)
- In this page you can find practical advices and lay summaries for mycotoxin management along the food and feed chains, developed by several reasearch groups led by our partners.
