EraNet Grant for Research on Microbial Synthesis of Polymers

EraNet Grant for Research on Microbial Synthesis of Polymers | iBB | Scoop.it
A team of researchers from BERG-iBB led by Joaquim Cabral and Pedro Fernandes is part of an international consortium awarded with an EraNet-Industrial Biotechnology grant to fund the multilateral research project "Polybugs - In vivo cascades for sustainable access to monomers of high volume polymers". The project aims at the development/improvement of a microbial cell factory platform for the biotechnological production of polymer precursors. It considers various aspects with regard to the expression of heterologous pathways, reaction and reactor engineering. The project combines systems biology and industrial biotechnology/process engineering. Apart from iBB, the consortium includes research groups from Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ, team leader), ifu Hamburg GmbH, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the industrial partner Evonik Creavis GmbH.

6th Call for Transnational Research Projects on Industrial Biotechnology

6th Call for Transnational Research Projects on Industrial Biotechnology | iBB | Scoop.it

"ERA-IB-2 together with EuroTransBio (ETB) launched the 6thtransnational call for research projects on the 1st of December 2014 under the topic: Industrial Biotechnology for Europe - an Integrated Approach. Its main goal is to encourage academics and industrial researchers with expertise in Industrial Biotechnology to work together across the whole value chain. By cofounding this call, the organizations will contribute to less fragmentation of resources and an increase in transnational networking."

Miguel Prazeres's insight:
Deadline for submission of pre-proposal is 23rd February 2015.
