The Institute of Sciences of Food Production – National Research Councilof Italy (ISPA-CNR), under the aegis of the MycoKey project (http://www.mycokey.eu/) and the International Society for Mycotoxicology (ISM), is hosting a 4 days Workshop-Training Course from 16 to 19 October, 2017.
The course aims at training smart, integrated, sustainable solutions and innovative tools to manage and reduce the major mycotoxins (aflatoxins, fumonisins, trichothecenes and ochratoxin A) in economically important food and feed chains (maize, wheat, barley, dried fruits and grape) in pre and post-harvest.
Advanced technologies in the field of chemical detection, molecular analysis, modelling and ICT solutions will be covered by highly qualified international instructors, throughout lectures and laboratory experiences.
About half of the duration of the workshop will be ”hands on” and spent in the laboratory.

The H2020 funded projects, AgroCycle and NoAW, are jointly hosting this event to present current thinking and developments in relation to the Circular Economy (CE) applied across the agri-food industry.
It combines an overview of the significance and relevance of the CE to the agri-food industry and presents the latest developments in technologies and systems right across the industry chain, from on-farm production systems, through retail and on to the consumer; and beyond into the bio-economy built on the agri-food 'circular economy'. Come join us and take the opportunity to influence the work programme for both NoAW and AgroCycle, thus enriching the overall experience and ensuring your issues are taken into account.
