'Marine biotechnology: future challenges', Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy
[Event Date: 2010-06-20]
A conference on 'Marine biotechnology: future challenges' will take place from 20 to 25 June 2010 in Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy.
During the last decade, the scientific and political landscape of marine biotechnology has fundamentally changed. Despite significant achievements, marine biotechnology has further potential in answering the numerous challenges facing European countries. Therefore, the event will highlight innovation and vision for the future of marine biotechnology in Europe, moving from exploitation to sustainability.
The conference will also promote scientific excellence in marine biotechnology by providing scientists and young researchers with a platform to present their work, to discuss current scientific understanding and recent developments in key areas of marine biotechnology, and to identify the priorities for further research and infrastructure.
The event will draw from a broad range of scientific disciplines focusing on identified themes, research tools and approaches of strategic importance on topics such as aquaculture, bioprospecting, algae and seaweed biomass, health, marine bionanotechnology and biomaterials, marine models, marine genomics, bioinformatics and research infrastructures.
The Marine Board of the European Science Foundation and COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) are jointly organising the event.
