Chalmers and LNBR workshop on sustainable bio-based circular economy
The fifth edition of the IBSB: Chalmers and LNBR cooperation on circular bioeconomy will gather researchers from Brazil and Sweden to discuss how SynBio and Biocatalysis can contribute to developing a circular and sustainable bioeconomy.
Both parties perform research in the enzymatic deconstruction of biomass and the development of microbial cell factories for the bioproduction of valuable chemicals and fuels. They can, therefore, easily communicate around research questions and implementation of results. However, the network partners act in different contexts and have a lot to learn from each other, both in terms of research and regional policies for outreach and commercialization of key results.
This workshop is part of a collaborative network between researchers at LNBR and Chalmers University of Technology, who both have a broad competence in industrial biotechnology and SynBio. The V IBSB will be the first step to consolidate this network and foster new collaborations between researchers from Brazil and Sweden.
