Workshop TOXICROP project

The workshop of the kick-off meeting of the CIIMAR project “TOXICROP - Cyanotoxins in Irrigation Waters: Surveillance, Risk Assessment, and Innovative Remediation proposals” that will be held at CIIMAR on the 22 february.


The TOXICROP Workshop is devoted to the research in the fields of Toxic Cyanobacteria and Cyanotoxins surveillance, detection and ecotoxicology and also water bioremediation. It is thereby addressed to all scientists and students with interest and working in these fields of science. For the workshop several Experts participating in the TOXICROP project were invited to present their research work.


TOXICROP is a European project that aims through Research and Innovation Staff Exchange to map agricultural risk areas of cyanotoxin occurrence, to access the fate of cyanotoxins in crops, bioaccumulation in crops and food contamination related to the use of eutrophic waters in crop irrigation. Environment-friendly, low-cost techniques of water treatment will also be developed, and methods to detect and assess toxicity of cyanotoxins improved. 47 missions will be carried by the consortium partners to develop multidisciplinary Research and Innovation activities in the domains of water toxicology, food safety and water treatment.


TOXICROP is funded by the European Commission.
