The novel techniques for a sustainable exploitation of marine bioproducts open new perspectives for European marine biotechnology industry, an area of enormous potential for european economy and benefit for society. The long-term vision of the European Union FP7 CoreShell and Bluegenics Projects is to develop trend-setting new methodologies for efficient and a sustainable production of marine bioactive compounds. The research groups from Johannes Gutenberg University and Ruđer Bošković Institute have been cooperating for long period on exploration of marine molecular biodiversity. In collaboration with private companies in the pharmaceutical and nanotechnology field, we strive to contribute to strengthening the international position and effectiveness of the european blue biotechnology industry.

This event, hosted by the Center for Marine Research of the Ruđer Bošković Institute with the support of the European Commission through the CoreShell and BlueGenics Projects, aims to bring together local stakeholders to consider the perspectives of the Northern Adriatic region for Innovative bio-economy based on marine resources. It will be held in Multimedia Center Rovinj on 17th September 2014, starting at 18:00. The agenda is enclosed in the invitation.
