Published Roadmap for Research and Innovation in Marine Biotechnology


The ERA-NET (European Research Area Network) project on Marine Biotechnology - ERA-MBT - published in September the Roadmap for Research and Innovation in Marine Biotechnology.

The Roadmap is a document with the purpose of setting guidelines for the future of European marine biotechnology research and innovation, enabling its growth within a self-sustainability oriented network. National and European policy organizations can use the document in developing measures that maximize the contribution of ocean bio-resources to the bio-economy and social welfare. For funding agencies it will be an essential reference for identifying research areas related to marine biotechnology.

FCT is a member of ERA-MBT, a network funded under the 7th Framework Programme which brings together 19 funding agencies from 14 European countries. This network aims to identify the needs and shortcomings of its partners in the area of marine biotechnology, in an attempt to promote cooperation practices for the implementation of a European Research Area in marine biotechnology and valorization of marine bio-resources.
