Mardi 9 octobre 2018 : "Bioresources: unlocking and accessing the potential of the marine environment "
Organisée par : Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique, EMBRC-France
"Marine bioresources are at the heart of economic activities in the maritime regions, providing the food we eat, the air we breathe, and to an increasing, extent new products and a new frontier to explore in terms of biotechnological advances. Brittany and the surrounding regions have a wealth of expertise and projects valorising biological resources from the sea and continue to drive and innovate the biotech sector. This session will give a flavour of what Brittany had to offer of activities related to marine bioresources in public-private partnerships, industrial R&D, and fundamental research, and how to access the marine ecosystems, its biological resources and related expertise through the international network of research infrastructures present in Brittany."
Jeudi 11 octobre 2018 : "Sustainable biorefinery for marine ressources "
[Bioprocédés, valorisation et extraction]
Organisée par : GENIALG (Station Biologique de Roscoff (CNRS, Sorbonne University) et OLMIX Group) et CBB Capbiotek
"Led by CNRS SBR and OLMIX, partners of the GENIALG H2020 project, and CBB Capbiotek, this one-day session will be the opportunity to discover pioneering companies and projects implementing the concept of large-scale integrated biorefineries in the EU. International academic and industrial references will describe advances on the process of cracking the biomass and developing a wide diversity of products. This conference will address scientific discoveries and industrial developments in the value chains for seaweed biorefineries but also for other biomass in the blue biotechnology sector."
