ENHANCING RESEARCH AND INNOVATION CAPACITY OF TUBITAK MAM FOOD INSTITUTE ON MANAGEMENT OF MYCOTOXIGENIC FUNGI AND MYCOTOXINS

Project description

Mycotoxins and mycotoxigenic fungi under the research microscope

Mycotoxins pose a major concern worldwide since they are harmful to both humans and animals and have a tremendous economic impact with significant implications for food and feed safety, food security, and international trade. They have a destructive effect on crop yield and negatively affect the quantity and quality of agricultural commodities. 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.
