MYCONET : European network of information sources for an identification system of emerging mycotoxins in wheat based supply chains

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    This report describes the results of the MYCONET project, an international research project aimed at initiating a sustainable platform (network) of information sources that proactively provides specified information for an emerging risk identification system. As a case study, the project focused on emerging mycotoxins, in particular related to Fusarium spp., in European wheat based feed and food supply chains. From this study, it was concluded that a major challenge in establishing an identification system for emerging mycotoxins is to get everyone involved in sharing data and information. Communication to all economic actors and stakeholders is very important. Also, long term funding for a dedicated project team to develop and run the system is essential
