MycoTrend is a company created by two researchers from the School of Biotechnology, specialized in the establishment of wild mushroom plantations and the production and sale of mycorrhizal plants for the production of edible mushrooms. This start-up arises from the union between the forestry sector and biotechnology aiming at the valorisation of forest plantations through its mycological resource.
In 2013, MycoTrend wins the "Entrepreneurship North and Center Promotion Project" award, a program to support environmental entrepreneurship.
