EMBRIC is a cluster of six pan-European Research Infrastructures (RIs) which offers transversal workflows to accelerate innovation in marine biotechnology.


After running the RI cluster for 34 months, the EMBRIC consortium has identified several barriers which slow down innovation in the field, including obstacles related to standards, investment capacity and sustainability of marine bioresources. In particular optimizing policies that decrease the risk-taking capacity of private investments will be essential in promoting the blue bio-economy in peripheral maritime regions.


The EMBRIC consortium has started working with the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions to tackle these issues and to inform regional, national and European policy-makers. The objective of this meeting is to discuss the coupling of smart specialization strategies in the maritime regions with investment policies to promote innovation in marine biotechnology.
