How we inform the world about mycotoxins reduction
Dissemination is very important to spread MycoRed outputs all over the world. The organisation of various meetings and conferences in different countries will allow public to know the project results and to be informed about mycotoxins.
With this aim, we're organizing International conferences, workshops on specific themes, home education actions, training courses, involving our End Users Club and all interested people.
