What is Mycoforum?

Mycoforum® is an international event created by the European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation “European Mycological Institute” (EGTC-EMI) in order to facilitate the exchange of scientific-technical knowledge between Mycological Parks and promote the responsible use of forest mycological resources as an engine of rural development.

It aims to facilitate innovative cooperation between the public-private agents involved based on quality mycological products and services capable of generating territorial attractiveness from cities to rural areas.

In addition, Mycoforum will sensitize society about:

  • The ecological importance of fungi in forests.
  • The importance of considering fungi in forest management (mycosilviculture).
  • The different usable local species, where and how to collect them responsibly.
  • The importance of quality control to ensure food safety and avoid fraud.
  • The most suitable ways of using mushrooms in the kitchen to enjoy all their qualities.
  • Mycotourism: mycological parks, local agri-food products, fairs, conferences, specialized restaurants, etc.

Mycoforum ® is an annual itinerant event that has been conceived for its organization in municipalities around a Mycological Park with attractive exhibition spaces that guarantee the influx of public from the cities to the rural environment and maximum dissemination.
