Marine Biotechnology Conference 2020
SAVE THE DATE NOVEMBER 25, 2020
Welcome to the second annual meetup on Marine Biotechnology
This is an early announcement welcoming you all interested in marine biotechnology. This one-day conference and meeting point addresses the ongoing rapid development in marine biotechnology. The programme will be divided into two sessions - Marine Materials (before lunch) and Antifouling (after lunch).
Date: November 25, 2020
Venue: Kristineberg Marine Research Station, Fiskebäckskil. The conference will also be streamed via Zoom.
Registration: Stay tuned! Registration will open after summer holidays.
This is the second meeting in what is planned to be a series of annual meetings on marine biotechnology in the region, with the goal to provide a connection hub for academia and industry. The last meeting was well attended with over 100 participants. We hope for similar good response this year. Here is a link to the 2019 conference, Marine Biotechnology - Marine Products for Health >>
Full programme will be announced during early fall. Two key-note speakers have confirmed their presence so far:
- Catherine Taylor, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, "Applications of marine polysaccharider"
- Nick Aldred - Essex University, UK, "Marine biofouling and antifouling strategies"
In addition, there will be a selected set of local speakers as well as an opportunity for companies and researchers to present their activities in short presentations (“speed talks”).
Please forward this information to group members, colleagues, collaborators, students, friends who you think might have an interest in this event.
