Logo-roscoff
CNRS is the largest research organisation in Europe, with more than 30,000 employees, half of which are researchers. The organisation covers all scientific domains, with a particular emphasis on inter-disciplinarity. In this context, the main goals of the research carried out by its employees are to improve knowledge, ensure economic and technological development and solve complex societal problems. Since the beginning of the Framework Programmes, the CNRS has implemented a specific network of skilled staff in all its regional departments in order to give a support on administrative, financial and legal aspects of FP projects to the researchers.

CNRS, Station biologique de Roscoff is the coordinator of the MG4U project.

The MG4U project will involve the SBR, a research unit jointly operated by CNRS and UPMC (FR 2424). Founded in 1872, SBR is part of the Marine Sciences Centre, a federal organization which coordinates research and higher education and promotes common activities in the field of marine sciences for UPMC as a whole. This network played a major role in the emergence of marine genomics in Europe and will be part of the ESFRI infrastructure project referred to as EMBRC (European Marine Biological Resource Centre).
