Report My project comprised the attendance of the 11th International MycologyCongress (IMC11) in Puerto Rico and a field campaign in Brazil to collect additional specimens for my PhD project. At the conference I could discuss major parts of my studies and built up contacts to researchers in my field of mycology. I could strengthen contacts to experienced and renowned international reseachers. At the field campaign in the brasilian Cerrado Biome I could not only collect important additional species to increase the importance of my thesis but also two undescribed species were collected. So, this funded project finally increased the impact of my thesis but also fostered my future scientific carrer.
