MycoTWIN aims to significantly strengthen a defined field of research (researches on mycotoxigenic fungi and mycotoxins) in TUBITAK (an institute from a widening country) by linking it with CNR and UV (two internationally-leading research institutes in Member States Countries).
MycoTWIN will support the entire value chain from planning of the cropping system to cultivation of crops, harvest, storage, transport, processing and consuming, all of which can be affected by mycotoxins. This multi-actor partnership approach will integrate the EU Commission food safety policy as well as relevant supranational guidelines (e.g. CODEX).
MycoTWIN will provide knowledge and experience transfers on mycotoxigenic fungi and mycotoxins achieved from other FP7 and H2020 projects (e.g. MycoRed and MycoKey), and clustered in three operational areas: i) Integrated Information System; ii) Toxigenic Fungi and Mycotoxin Monitoring; iii) Prevention, Intervention and Remediation MycoTWIN will enhance the scientific and technological capacity of the all three institutions in this specific field with a principal focus on TUBITAK.
