MG4U Workshop: Unlocking the Potential of Genomics for Marine Monitoring and Biodiversity Mapping: from Concept to Realisation

On the 28th June 2013, The MG4U project is hosting a workshop on Marine Genomic Applications in Dublin, Ireland.

This international workshop is intended to specifically explore the current and future commercial opportunities for existing and new bio-science businesses in the field of marine environmental services through the application of the latest genomic based tools and developments.

The workshop will also consider what actions need to be taken at a national or European level that could help enable the faster commercial development of this new sector. Aligned with the EC’s strategy of smart specialisation in regions, the role of marine technology clusters in facilitating such developments will be explored.

Format: The workshop will contain a mix of presentations and break out sessions enabling fruitful discussions and exchanges. Participation will be limited to ensure optimal networking and exchange between participants.

Expected Participants: Leading Marine genomics researchers, competent authorities tasked with marine monitoring, development agencies and regional authorities, technology clusters and policy/decision makers.
