ERASynBio sponsors advancing Europe teams

ERASynBio logo

ERASynBio is once again offering sponsorship to all of the advancing teams from Europe! Sponsorship coordinators will reach out to all advancing teams from the Europe region.

ERASynBio promotes the robust development of Synthetic Biology by structuring and coordinating national efforts and investment. ERASynBio's main activities include developing a strategic research agenda / white paper, which supports the emergence of national Synthetic Biology programmes and lays the ground for transnational funding activities via joint calls in the project. ERASynBio stimulates and tackles the interdisciplinary nature and immaturity of the field by offering training and educational possibilities, establishing an interdisciplinary advisory board and inviting observers of other funding organisations. Tight collaboration between academia and industry aiming to fertilize the innovation process is occuring on several levels. To adhere to ethical, legal and societal aspects as well as to technical issues like standardisation and infrastructure development ERASynBio is tracing the ongoing work and research on these framework conditions, integrating them in its strategic documents and activities.
