MaCuMBA Project Final Event: Marine Microbiome - Discovery & Innovation

 MaCuMBA Final Event Announcement header

The MaCuMBA project will host a joint industry conference and open science meeting in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany’s leading science and technology park, from 27-30 June 2016. The conference, entitled ‘The Marine Microbiome – Discovery & Innovation’ will focus on the biotechnical applications of marine microbes.

MaCuMBA focuses on increasing the rate of isolation of marine microorganisms using novel high throughput techniques for improved isolation efficiency and cultivation of marine microorganisms and screening for bioactive compounds and biotechnological applications.

The effective transfer of novel research discoveries in the field of marine biotechnology can greatly improve Europe’s capacity to generate new commercial opportunities. This exciting event represents MaCuMBA’s contribution to exploring how the European marine biotech industry could benefit from the latest research results in the area. It will be a platform for research and industry alike to diversify their cross-sectorial knowledge, strengthen their existing partnerships and build new opportunities.

Target outputs of the MaCuMBA project that have potential industrial relevance will be presented and practical commercial development and applications of these outputs will be discussed.

‘The Marine Microbiome – Discovery & Innovation’ should not be missed. The programme will feature: an interactive industry exhibition featuring MaCuMBA ‘hardware’; round table discussions (on the cultivation of microorganisms, the potential of marine microbiology for industry, the future of synthetic microbiology and the global effects of legislation on marine biodiscovery); moderated panel discussions; one-to-one meetings; and excellent networking opportunities.
