Researchers from CESAM at BIOMARINE 2024

Helena Vieira (CESAM/DAO) and Ricardo Calado (CESAM/DBIO) attended the BIOMARINE 2024 conference, held on January 30 and 31 in Biarritz, France. This event is dedicated to the blue economy at large and is a high-level trans-sectorial networking meeting.

During the conference, researcher Helena Vieira took on the role of moderator in the panel titled “The Silent Revolution of Marine Origin Biomaterials,” while researcher Ricardo Calado played the role of panel member in “Marine Biotech Disruptive Innovation (What is coming soon?)”.

Participation in this event is of great importance for CESAM as an Associated Laboratory/Research Unit and for the University of Aveiro as it “reinforces their positioning as open agents to society and partners of excellence in providing scientific support to blue bioeconomy companies and investors,” as emphasized by Helena Vieira. For both, participation in this event “reaffirms the institutional commitment to the Blue Bioeconomy, one of the engines of sustainable development for Portugal and the European Union,” as highlighted by Ricardo Calado.

The BIOMARINE 2024 conference, in its 15th edition, brought together representatives from industry, investors, policy makers, and academics in the Blue Bioeconomy, providing a space for discussion on the latest trends in this industry.
