ERA-MBT workshop on collaboration opportunities, Berlin

Sep-08-15 to Sep-09-15
Berlin, Germany

A noon to noon workshop with the coordinators/leaders of a selected group of project leaders of various European Bioeconomy projects and networks will be organised from 8 to 9 September 2015 in Berlin, Germany, back to back with the PLATFORM Annual Event 2015.

The aim of the workshop is to identify potential overlaps in research topics/goals and explore opportunities for collaboration.

Being in the second year of its operational phase, ERA-MBT is actively seeking complementarities between national activities to further support the development of European marine biotechnology. Following activities are high on the priority list and could be of interest to other networks:

  • Launching thematic calls to generate joint European research and development activities.
  • Arranging stakeholder events to promote dialogue between science, industry and policy and identifying requirements for successful developments within the area.
  • Developing a perspective on the future of marine biotechnology research and development and its likely impacts.
  • Providing information about biotechnology in an online and open access portal with a wiki function.

ERA-MBT would like to explore common interests with other networks which could lead to future collaborations.
