This proposal contains elements of three EuroMarine activity categories: It is foremost a novel and innovative way to build capacity and to train early career scientists (CBT-NC); It also has elements of a foresight workshop (FSW) because it reviews current trends (here next generation sequencing) and leads to a review paper. Finally it has elements of a service workshop (SW) because it evaluates open access resources that could be adopted by EuroMarine as a generic service to its community.
The 12 early-career-scientist participants will be selected based on their experience with marine microbiome analysis and current research activities. They should be postdocs or recently appointed researchers from as many different institutions/countries as possible. Gender balance will also be considered. For the first edition, participation is restricted to EM full and invited members in order to stress the benefits of being part of the EM network. Special care will be taken to include participants with experience with protocols from Tara Oceans, Malaspina, Ocean Sampling Day and Earth Microbiome. EMOSE will be led by Stephane Pesant (MARUM), Tim Deprez (UGent), Ivo Grigorov (DTU Aqua), Catarina Magalhaes (CIIMAR), Alessandro Vezzi (UniPd) and Francesca Malfatti (OGS).
