Abstract:
The European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster (EMBRIC) is designed to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation from marine Bio-Resources. EMBRIC aims to promote new applications derived from marine organisms in fields such as drug discovery, novel foods and food ingredients, aquaculture selective breeding, bioremediation, cosmetics and bioenergy. By conducting a comprehensive survey of available resources and techniques, EMBRIC will develop new pipelines and new industry standards. By interconnecting science, industry and policy, EMBRIC will defragment regional research, development and innovation policies. By implementing joint academia-industry development activities, EMBRIC will allow industry to directly integrate results and protocols in commercial processes. By developing best practices and integrated training programs, EMBRIC will accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation. By connecting six existing European RIs and 27 partners from Academia, Research institutes, non-for-profit organizations and industry, EMBRIC will facilitate technology transfer, knowledge transfer and transnational access. In general, EMBRIC will provide a long-term integrated cluster approach to promote the Blue Bio-Economy.
