Symposium on collaborative research between INTERBIO partners

Oeiras, 06.04.10

On April 12, ITQB welcomes researchers from the Institute Européen de Chimie et Biologie (Bordeaux) for a one day Symposium on collaborative research under the framework of INTERBIO. The symposium, entitled Frontiers in Chemical Biology, is open to all researchers interested in these topics.

Interbio is a consortium of research institutions from Southwest Europe, joint financed by the INTERREG IVB South west Europe transnational cooperation program 2007-2013, Priority 1: "The promotion of innovation and the setting up of long lasting cooperative networks in the technology field". The consortium’s main objective is to develop interdisciplinary research in the interface between chemistry and life/health sciences following three main axes; promote interdisciplinary research collaborations, gather expertise and optimize access to technological platforms, and support technology transfer and social utilization of knowledge, namely through SMEs.
