Welcome to the second annual meetup on Marine Biotechnology.

This one-day conference and meeting point addresses the ongoing rapid development in marine biotechnology. The programme will be divided into two sessions – Marine Materials (before lunch) and Antifouling (after lunch).

This is the second meeting in what is planned to be a series of annual meetings on marine biotechnology in the region, with the goal to provide a connection hub for academia and industry. The last meeting was well attended with over 100 participants. We hope for similar good response this year. Here is a link to the 2019 conference, Marine Biotechnology – Marine Products for Health

The full programme will be announced during the early fall at maritimaklustret.se

Two key-note speakers have confirmed their presence:

  • Catherine Taylor, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, ”Applications of marine polysaccharider”
  • Nick Aldred – Essex University, UK, ”Marine biofouling and antifouling strategies”

In addition, there will be a selected set of local speakers as well as an opportunity for companies and researchers to present their activities in short presentations (“speed talks”).

The event is organised by the Maritime Cluster of West Sweden and Kristineberg Center for Marine Research and Innovation.

The conference will also be streamed via Zoom.
