IBISBA (EU project's workshop)

IBISBA (www.ibisba.eu) is an emerging, European-based distributed R&D infrastructure that brings together best-in-class European R&D facilities, including biofoundries, creating a wider framework for accelerated end-to-end bioprocess development, the aim being to rapidly deliver industry-ready processes and thus reduce time to market.

In this session, we will appraise the current state of play in the bio foundry area and examine how biofoundries are likely to evolve in the future. We will focus on the IBISBA concept, looking at how biofoundry activities can be better developed within the wider framework of end-to-end bioprocess development, an approach that is being promoted by IBISBA. Moreover, we will examine some of the challenges related to injecting industry constraints into early phase bioprocess development.

This session will bring together leading researchers from the IBISBA network of research facilities, Prof. Paul Freemont (Imperial College London) who is heading the Global Foundry Alliance and industry players involved in the development of commercial biofoundries. The workshop will be a lively combination of talks and debates in which the audience will be invited to play a full, active role.

Workshop
14:00 – 17:00
VALUEMAG (EU project's workshop)

Current major world issues are, on one hand, environmental problems such as global warming and air and ground pollution, and on the other hand, fuel supply. A very promising alternative that is becoming more and more popular consists in the development of microalgae-based bio-refineries.
In this respect, the VALUEMAG project proposes a revolutionary, innovative, and eco-friendly solution to reduce significantly the associated costs, and thus building more efficient microalgae-based  bio-refinery systems.

Workshop
The event agenda's time zone is CET.
