Collaboration Established Between Toxins and Mycokey Project


recently established a partnership with the EU funded project Mycokey. MycoKey is been funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, Societal challenge 2 “Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine, maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy challenge” – topic “Biological contamination of crops and the food chain”. Mycokey aims at generating innovative and integrated solutions and supporting stakeholders for an effective and sustainable mycotoxin management along food and feed chains. It will contribute to the reduction of mycotoxin contamination mainly in Europe and China, significant areas due to their increasing mycotoxin occurrence.

The 1st Mycokey International Conference Global Mycotoxin Reduction in the Food and Feed Chain will be held in Ghent, Belgium, 11–14 September 2017. The goal of this conference is to share knowledge at a global level, as well as to provide practical solutions to operators, directly involved in specific food and feed chains. This will be done through the development of tools for the prevention, monitoring, and reduction of mycotoxins in the field or during industrial processing, in a dynamic system able to consider variable data and information.

Toxins will be responsible for publishing the meeting abstracts and full text manuscripts. A Special Issue has been launched in Toxins, with Professors Sarah De Saeger and Antonio F. Logrieco serving as the Guest Editors. More information about the Special Issue can be found here.
