Mycology Department

The aim of the Szeged Fungus Association, declared by its statute, is to promote nature conservation, particularly the protection of macrofungi; therefore, the association attains public lectures to establish and maintain social foundations of macrofungi conservation.

The Mycology Department public lecture series, hosted by the Szeged Fungus Association, presents macrofungi-related lectures like studies, reviews, and interesting facts for the community interested in macrofungi. The lectures are free, and no registration is required.

The lectures are scheduled for the second Wednesday of every month at 6 pm, on our YouTube channel. In the interactive part, the lecturer answers the questions raised by the audience.  The foreign language presentations are subtitled. The streamed programs are being recorded, subtitled, translated (based on our capacity), and made available on our channel.
