The 2.5-year project was officially launched in early 2019. By holding multiple academic activities, an international Belt and Road conference brand has been created, and China’s academic influence in the field of fungi research has been extended to countries along the Belt and Road. Five Belt and Road conferences and three international training workshops have been organized at home and abroad. For example, an International Conference on China - Middle East Belt and Road Mycoses Prevention and Control opened in Tehran, Iran. The International Forum on Belt and Road Health and the Preservation and Innovative Development of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC) was hosted in Meizhou City, Guangdong Province. Hangzhou City in Zhejiang Province hosted an International Conference on the Prevention and Control of Severe Mycoses in Countries along the Belt and Road by the Chinese Academy of Engineering . The head of the project, CAE member Liao Wanqing, has taken the lead in establishing the World Association of Chinese Dermatologists, an international Belt and Road academic organization, and served as the Chair. Research findings and work by the project team have been covered by mainstream media such as the Liberation Daily, the Beijing News, MD Weekly, China Newsweek, etc., and its findings have been highly praised by society. “Super fungus” prevention and control topics remained among the most trending at major online platforms such as NetEase, Weibo and Baidu for three days, creating widespread social influence.
