VIRTUAL EVENT. MycoKey 2020. Integrated and innovative key actions for mycotoxin management in the food and feed chain.

19-21 October 2020. MycoKey 2020. Final International Conference on-line. “Integrated and innovative key actions for mycotoxin management in the food and feed chain”

This international Conference was organized together with the 2nd International Forum on Mycotoxins in Animal Production and the participation of MyToolBox project under the umbrella of the International Society for Mycotoxicology (ISM).

  • During the conference, experts and international scientists presented the latest knowledge and researches on mycotoxin management, including the outcomes of the four years EU projects, with special focus on Europe-China dialogue.
  • The conference, aims to be a very important and strategic appointment for all the scientific communities, industries/companies and stakeholders, that operate in the field of the food safety, and it is based on a cross -disciplinary approach, required by the deep evolution of the whole agrifood sector. 
  • The programme of the Conference is strongly oriented towards integrated strategies for mycotoxin minimization worldwide including topics on advances in applied research in food chain , and topics focusing on industrial and networking actions.
