MYCORED aims at developing strategic solutions to reduce contamination by mycotoxins of major concern in economically important food and feed chains, through Mycotoxins research joint actions.
The project will significantly be build on the outcome of several European projects (through most coordinators/partners of FP5 and FP6) on mycotoxins by supporting, stimulating and facilitating
education and cooperation with countries having major mycotoxin concerns related to international trade and human health. The direct involvement of ICPC countries (Argentina, Egypt, Russia, South
Africa) and international organizations (CIMMYT, IITA) together with strong scientific alliances with International Experts will strengthen the project through sharing experiences and resources from
several past/ongoing mycotoxin projects in a global context.
Novel methodologies, efficient handling procedures and information, dissemination and educational strategies are considered in a context of multidisciplinary integration of know-how and technology to
reduce mycotoxins exposure worldwide.
