MARINE GENOMICS FOR USERS

mg4u logo

MG4U

Marine Genomics for Users (MG4U) facilitates knowledge transfer, technology transfer, and technology translation between high-throughput marine genomics, industry and society.


TITLE: Marine Genomics for Users
PROGRAMME: FP7, Cooperation; Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology (KBBE)
INSTRUMENT: Coordination and Support Action
TOTAL BUDGET: €1,120,000
EC CONTRIBUTION: €997,826
DURATION: January 2011 – June 2013
COORDINATOR: Station biologique de Roscoff, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France
CONSORTIUM: 7 partners from 6 countries

Marine genomics has enormous potential to improve our lifestyles and prosperity, and to assist with governance and sustainable management of the marine environment. However, many business leaders and legislators are not yet aware of the potential benefits of marine genomics. Valuable knowledge needs to be made accessible and transferred in user-friendly contexts.

MG4U responds to several critical bottlenecks. It will spread results from recent and on-going projects in marine genomics and enhance rapid, efficient knowledge transfer to generate interdisciplinary research capacity in Europe. Scientists, government officials and representatives from small, medium and large enterprises will participate in diverse transfer activities.
