    The Marine Biotechnology ERA-NET will hold a stakeholder meeting in Brussels, coinciding with the launch of the recently completed European Marine Biotechnology Research and Innovation Roadmap. The meeting builds on the key elements of the Roadmap and will feature a wide range of speakers from international industry and the research community.

    The event will run from 9:00 to 17:00 on 13th October and from 9:00 to 13:00 on 14th October and comprises 6 sessions:

    • Session 1: Marine biotechnology, an industry perspective. With the aim of stimulating innovations based on the use of marine biotechnology to explore and maximise the use of marine bioresources, speakers from different industry sectors will describe how they use a range of novel marine materials in commercial applications.

    • Session 2: Creating a marine biotechnology business. The challenges of building a business venture based on marine biotechnology are the focus of this session, which includes presentations on financing a new biotechnology enabled venture, managing knowledge transfer and intellectual property in addition to case studies presented by two marine biotechnology driven high-potential SMEs providing novel products to vastly different global markets.

    • Session 3: Supporting marine biotechnology RTDI. Leading industry practitioners will will give their perspectives on the future opportunities to develop new research tools and infrastructure; novel processes and applications in the health, food and food ingredients sectors.

    • Session 4: ERA-MBT and other EU supported marine biotechnology projects. Participants will learn of the impacts and outputs from some of Europe’s major publicly funded marine biotechnology research projects and hear of the progress on projects funded by the first ERA-MBT call for research proposals.

    • Session 5 – 6: Future research opportunities and setting priorities. Highly interactive sessions will focus on mechanisms to support marine biotechnology and set priorities for marine biotechnology research and innovation.

    The Marine Biotechnology Research and Innovation roadmap will be launched 12th October at 16:00 in Hotel Marivaux. Persons planning to attend the stakeholder meeting are invited to the launch where brief details of the roadmap will be presented followed by a networking cocktail.

    The Stakeholder meeting is open for all stakeholders and can be attended for free. Due to security regulations, the number of places is limited and will be allocated on the first-come-first-served basis. Participants are required to register using the link below before Monday 26 September.
