About this event

The microbiome online workshop organized by MicrobiomeSupport consortium comprises two days, 11 – 12 October 2021.

Future microbiome applications in the food and bioeconomy sector will require well-trained personnel in microbiome-related technologies (e.g. –omics, bioinformatics, etc.) and other multi-disciplinary aspects.

On 11th and 12th of October 2021, MicrobiomeSupport will organize an online workshop to elaborate and discuss together with companies and representatives of global university and research institutions the educational needs in microbiome research. The workshop will also address educational needs that arise from a public health perspective.

More than bringing together a broad spectrum of stakeholders, the workshop aims to:

  • Define educational needs in microbiome research for industry, public health and academia.
  • Create awareness about educational needs. MicrobiomeSupport will use the outcome of this workshop to help solving existing issues.
  • Define strategies to better meet educational needs at national and international level and promote trans-sectorial networking and collaboration with academia.
  • Connect industry with academia and public health institution

The agenda features short and specific keynotes and two different roundtables involving experts from university and research institutions, industrial companies and the public health sector.

Monday 11th foresees three Sessions including “Needs for Public Health Authorities”, “Needs for Universities” and “Needs for Schools and Non-Academic Training”.

Tuesday 12th includes a Session about “Needs for Companies and Industry” and two roundtables where participants have the opportunity to discuss consumer acceptance of microbiome innovations and the needs of educational and human resources by the industry.
