Newsletter Sept 2017 – What’s on MycoKey
MycoKey is developing innovative and integrated solutions to support stakeholders in effective and sustainable mycotoxin management along food and feed chains in Europe and China.
We’re pleased to present the progress of the project, and introduce our multidisciplinary research .
In the first 18 months, the MycoKey partners created the basis to organize a strong interactive team, which is conducting an international work to achieve ambitious objectives. The Kick off meeting was held in April 2016 in Italy, while the General Assemblies have been held in Italy and Belgium, respectively in March and September 2017.
The project is developing the MycoKey App for mobile devices, easy and friendly to be used by farmers and end users in the field and along the food chain. The app integrates key information and practical solutions for mycotoxin management, and allows users to mitigate potential mycotoxin risk.
The project is also strongly contributing to improve the cooperation on this topic between Europe and China. The first studies are being conducted in both areas, to better investigate different and severe mycotoxin contaminations in crops. In June 2017, the MycoKey Chinese Consortium project, funded by Chinese Government, had the kick off meeting in Bejing together with European MycoKey representatives.
In this issue we’re presenting our main activities. Enjoy your lecture!
