General information

The Horizon 2020 EUropean project EMBRIC will accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and promote new applications derived from marine organisms in areas such as drug discovery, biotech, and aquaculture. To enable EMBRIC partners to offer top of the range facilities and services best practices and integrated training programs need to be developed. This workshop will focus on identifying best practices in long-term preservation and reproductive technology, and current guidelines and regulations for containment of genetic resources and modified organisms.

EMBRIC invites you to participate in following workshops:

Workshop 1 (29/11/2016): Exploring new techniques and trends in genetic resources and existing frameworks and guidelines for their containment
Workshop 2 (30/11/2016): Existing approaches and future improvements in long-term preservation and reproductive technologies and the future improvements needed to foster better utilization of marine genetic resources.

The outcome of each workshop will be a report detailing the state-of-the-art, best practice guidelines and perspectives for improvement of services. The workshops will also contribute to assessing training needs and opportunities.
