  • 10 Jul 2021 to 11 Jul 2021
  • Online

Ocean4Biotech invites you to join our 48-hour Co-Creation Hackathon Challenge for contributing your knowledge and innovative ideas to identify the ingredients needed for a European Marine Biotechnology Innovation Ecosystem of Excellence.

This is a Co-Creation Challenge Call to all marine-professionals (biotechnologists, oceanographers, microbiologists, biologists, biochemists, biophysicists, epidemiologists, biomedical engineers, medical and clinical scientists, fishers, environmental toxicologists), PhD students, master of business students, start-ups, SMEs, entrepreneurs, investors, marketers, innovation process professionals, science parks, incubators, data scientists, software developers, ecosystem service professionals, policy-makers, ethics professionals, intellectual property professionals and marine environmental enthusiasts from Europe.

Help us co-create a plan for defining a pan-European Marine Biotechnology Innovation Ecosystem to boost the innovation of marine biotechnology and to advance the European Blue Growth.

Why should you get involved?

The ocean is still unexplored. Exploiting the ocean’s natural potential is a vast scientific and business opportunity. More than 30.000 compounds have been discovered from marine organisms and they are used today in medicine, food and other sectors.

Marine Biotechnology is a fast-growing Blue Growth area with an estimated revenue of €1 billion in Europe and growing. We must take responsibility and protect the ocean and its ecosystems at the same time.

Moreover, by participating in the event you will have a chance to join Ocean4Biotech and to get involved in writing scientific publications. Last, but not least, Hackathon will give you unique opportunity to expand my collaboration network.
