The online workshop ‘Health and economic benefits of microbiomes’, jointly organised by the European Parliament’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology and MicrobiomeSupport partners, will be held on the 11th of May. The central question: How can microbiome innovations help to solve grand societal challenges in health, biodiversity, sustainable food and agriculture, and the circular economy?
In this workshop, top European researchers will present state-of-the-art microbiome research in human and animal health, antibiotic resistance, environmental sustainability, and circular economy. Policy advisors to EFSA and OECD will inform about the safety and regulatory pathways of microbiome innovations. The workshop is chaired by Irene Verheijen, European Association for Food Law (EFLA). The Chair and Members of the STOA panel, and the European Parliament’s Vice President invite to an open discussion. Policy makers and implementers, regulatory decision makers, public health officials and food system actors as a whole are invited to join.
The programme and the registration link is available on the MicrobiomeSupport website.
