1st MYCOKEY International Conference ‘Global Mycotoxin Reduction in the Food and Feed Chain’

From 2017-09-11 to 2017-09-14, Ghent, BE
The MYCOKEY project will be holding its first International Conference in Ghent, Belgium from 11 to 14 September, 2017.
Mycotoxins have a significant impact on food and feed safety. Legislative limits and the emergence of new strains both lead to an increase in the number of official controls deriving from national food safety plans and for trade.

The EU-funded MYCOKEY project will be setting out some concepts to address the current challenges. The Conference will consider the following key areas, among others, in mycotoxin research:

- The global impact of mycotoxins

- Biodiversity and toxigenic fungi monitoring

- Prevention

- Animal health and toxicology

- Impact of climate change

- Human health and toxicology

- Modelling and ICT solutions

An exhibition of sample treatment and chromatographic equipment, test kits and other materials is being organised, interested exhibitors should contact the secretariat.
