Conclusion

The MycoGlobe project has created a network of mycotoxin specialists keen on information exchange and has resulted in submission of joint project proposals to generate a better understanding of the toxigenic fungi and the mycotoxins they produce with the overall goal of improving of food safety in domestic and international markets. Various donors and policy makers in Europe, Africa and South America have been sensitized to the importance of mycotoxins in enhancing food security and trade. Several scientists, technicians, policy makers and institutional specialists have been brought under one umbrella to help manage mycotoxins in a holistic manner. This interdisciplinary network of mycotoxin professionals should continue their interactions to improve the safety of the food supply globally beyond the life of the formal program.

The project also provides a mid-term contribution to European standards on the matter of mycotoxins and toxigenic fungi in food safety through the recommendations and deliverables of the conferences, which can be integrated into the general framework of regulations and their standardization/harmonization.
