SPONGE, CORALS AND THE WORLD is an international symposium on marine sciences, blue business and society.

The symposium is a joint initiative of three EC-funded projects: BluePharmTrain, Atlas and SponGES to bring together major scientific, industrial and societal stakeholders in blue biotechnology because effective transfer of novel discoveries in marine biotechnology can greatly improve Europe’s capacity, to address the needs of the society of the future and to generate new commercial opportunities.

An interactive industry exhibition, plenary lectures, poster sessions, and scientific talks, as well as keynote lectures are expected to build new opportunities in a cross-sectorial knowledge from research, societal partners and industry.
