#Microbes4SustainableFoods cluster at the EFFoST conference in Valencia

Published: Nov 9, 2023 by FME Lab

Stéphane participated to the #EFFOST2023 conference in Valencia (6th to 8th of November) during which a specific session an EU project was planned.

This session was the first clustering activity of the #Microbes4SustainableFoods, a collaborative network of five European projects (#DominoEU, #HealthFerm, Pimento ca20128, #Wheatbiome and #Tribiome) with an overlapping interest in the use of microbes in the food system and in particular in plant-based fermented foods.

Stéphane gave an overview of DOMINO objectives whereas, Abelardo Margolles (WP4 leader) gave an introduction on our strategy to design microbial consortia based on synthetic ecology approaches. The session was concluded by a roundtable discussion with the audience.

Off the conference, all coordinators met for a friendly dinner which was also the kick-off for organizing and sharing communications, disseminations and results over the coming years between the different projects.
