about us

EMI European Mycological Institute

The European Mycological Institute (EMI) is an European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) emerged in 2015 from the project Interreg IVB SUDOE MICOSYLVA. The purpose of the EMI is to carry out and manage, under a sustainable development perspective, projects and cooperation actions related to the management and valorisation of mycological resources.

We are registered in the European Committee of the Regions, and currently the EMI is made up of members from Aragón, Catalunya, Castilla y León, Occitanie and Nouvelle Aquitaine. We also have benefactor partners non EU from Canada, China, Switzerland, Australia and Japan. If you want to be a EMI member/benefactor/partner, please check our rules of procedure and fill the application form and send it to info@eumi.eu.
