Four blue biotechnology innovators are going to receive mentorship by partners of the Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance to advance their product development idea. This is the result of the #BalticBlueBioAlliance idea pitch held in Gothenburg, Sweden on 4 April 2017.
Come and join the #BalticBlueBioAlliance – our experts will help you take your blue biotechnology idea to the next level! The Baltic Sea Region's leading marine and biotechnology institutes have joined together and are opening their doors to you: labs, brains, resources, expertise and facilities are at your disposal.
Anna Kaczorowska from the University of Gdańsk represented the SUBMARINER Network and our Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance on the EurOcean conference “Facilitating Transnational Usage of Europe´s Marine Research Infrastructure”.
Fighting the onset of age-related blindness with algae-based dietary supplements; using Baltic Sea mollusc shells for bone tissue engineering; or improving the efficiency of bioenergy production with a new dryer – these exciting biotech ideas are among the newest cases to be helped by the #BalticBlueBioAlliance.
The first Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance call for ideas has closed and the results are in! In all, we received 20 exciting proposals from across the blue biotechnology spectrum and would like to thank all the candidates for submitting their ideas. All proposals were evaluated by a selection committee of Alliance experts from a range of disciplines and countries. The 11 highest-scoring proposals will pitch their idea to our panel of experts at the #BalticBlueBiotechAlliance Pitching and Matchmaking Event in Helsinki on 26 and 27 October 2016.
Registration is now open for the #BalticBlueBioAlliance Matchmaking Event taking place in Helsinki, Finland on 26–27 October 2016. The event will feature ample time for both organised matchmaking and informal networking, with European experts from across the blue biotechnology sector adding their insights.
Anke Spoorendonk, Minister of Justice, Culture and European Affairs of the State of Schleswig-Holstein visited GEOMAR-Biotech on 30 August 2016. A special focus of her visit rested on the Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance project, which is coordinated by the GEOMAR-Biotech.
For anyone in the blue biotechnology sphere, Helsinki is the place to be on 26–27 October this year! Don't miss the #BalticBlueBioAlliance matchmaking event organised by the Baltic Blue Biotechnology Alliance and hosted by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE). The event will feature ample time for both organised matchmaking and informal networking, with expert speakers from across the sector adding their insights.
