Stakeholders' corner

In this page you can find lay summaries for mycotoxin management along the food and feed chains, developed by several reasearch groups led by our partners.

The MycoKey Lay summaries are simple presentations that explain to potential users practical information on the use and application of a methodology, solution, technique, tool developed through the integrated research.

Prof. Paola Battilani from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, the MycoKey WP1 leader, has organized the lay summaries.
