        (session in English)


        Marine bioresources are at the heart of economic activities in the maritime regions, providing the food we eat, the air we breathe, and to an increasing, extent new products and a new frontier to explore in terms of biotechnological advances. Brittany and the surrounding regions have a wealth of expertise and projects valorising biological resources from the sea and continue to drive and innovate the biotech sector. This session will give a flavour of what Brittany had to offer of activities related to marine bioresources in public-private partnerships, industrial R&D, and fundamental research, and how to access the marine ecosystems, its biological resources and related expertise through the international network of research infrastructures present in Brittany.




        Part II-1: Research infrastructures (RIs): advanced tools to support fundamental and applied research in marine biology

        15:00 - DIAZ Isabelle, Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation, France

        Research infrastructures and dedicated services in France. Research infrastructures are new concepts for both academics and private companies. Here, the French ministry of higher education, research and innovation will present their vision of the future of research and how research infrastructures are at the heart of pushing research frontiers in the future.


        15:20 - PADE Nicolas, European Marine Biological Resources Center - France

        EMBRC-France, a research infrastructure for marine biological science and innovation, in France and across European. EMBRC is the research infrastructure dedicated to marine biological resources with three sites across France, including one in Brittany, and will present it services and how they can be a strong partner in pushing academic and R&D projects forward.


        15:35 - COLAS Pierre, INSERM – Station Biologique de Roscoff, France

        EMBRC-France commitment for marine biological industry sector. A look at the current industrial relations of EMBRC-France and the opportunities offered for companies on the three French sites, to show-case how an RI can support companies in the region and further afield.


        15:50 - SECADES Cristina, University of Vigo, Spain

        EMBRC Blue Biobank project: how to facilitate access to marine biological resources. Accessing bioresources has become highly regulated and now requires very specific permits and steps to obtain them and to ensure that any benefits derived from them are shared with the country of origin. The EEB project is working to ensure that EMBRC can supply bioresources in line with current legislation, and develop best practices and guidelines for the public and private sectors.  


        16:10 - Coffee break


        16.30 - CANCOUET Romain, Euro-Argo ERIC, France


        Euro-Argo is the European component of the international Argo programme, a network of oceanographic profilers across the world’s oceans. It offers access to a suite of data and data products and will demonstrate their application and how they can support local research and innovation.


        16:45 - FARCY Patrick, Ifremer, France

        Jerico-Next, as the European coastal observatory network, brings together all the major players in Europe. It is developing a host of services and products of interest to all who work near or in the sea. Here they will provide an overview of their activities and how they may benefit users of marine bioresources.


        17:00 - LEAU Helene & SARRADIN Pierre-Marie, Ifremer, France

        EMSO is the European subsea observatory infrastructure, with a strong presence in Brittany. Here they will present the last of the European marine research infrastructures and the opportunities and services they have to offer to research and innovation.


        Part II-2: Synergies between fundamental and applied research, how to reinforce the relationship to foster innovation

        17:15 - POTIN Philippe, Station Biologique de Roscoff, France ; NYVALL Pi, OLMIX, France ; ROY Philippe, Phosphotech, France ; PORTAL-SELLIN Rachel, Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique, France ; DIAZ Isabelle, MESRI, France ; and PADE Nicolas, EMBRC-FR, France

        Moderator: COLAS Pierre, INSERM - Station Biologique de Roscoff, France

        Exploring and improving collaborations between fundamental research and industry will be the heart of this discussion. Marine biotechnology sector growth and optimization of its potential exploitation relies on cooperation with fundamental research. Invited speakers will give insights on this interconnectivity from different perspectives : academic researcher, industrial researcher, policy maker, research infrastructure as support tools to marine biology innovation, and maritime cluster, as a catalyst for innovative and collaborative projects.


        16:00 - End of the session
