MICOFOOD project

The objective of the network of excellence is to deepen risk assessment, improve quality and food safety, and ultimately protect and promote the health of the population, focusing on the study of different aspects related to toxigenic fungi and their mycotoxin metabolites (MTs). It aims to deepen the relationship between researchers, the food industry and the health administration in order to address and, as far as possible, minimize the problems caused by the presence of toxigenic fungi in food, as well as to promote the implementation and actions of management measures. of the quality.

MYCOTWIN project

The EU-funded MycoTWIN project will bring together the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK), the National Research Council of Italy and the University of Valencia of Spain. The goal is to strengthen effective and sustainable mycotoxin management for minimising contamination in crops by exchange of knowledge and new pre- and post-harvest measures. The project will support the entire value chain, from the planning of the cropping system to crop cultivation, harvest, storage, transport, processing and consumption.
