    MVA Microbiome Network webinar – April 2020

    Welcome to the first webinar for the Medicon Valley Alliance Microbiome Network!

    Keynote on EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) regulatory perspectives on risk assessments and microbiomes 

    The microbiome community in the Medicon Valley region is vibrant and growing. Thanks to an overwhelming interest in the topic and keynote of the March 17 meeting of the network that needed to be postponed, we have decided to bring this to you in a reduced format as a 1 hour webinar.

    The topic for this webinar will be the EFSA Regulatory perspectives on risk assessments and microbiomes, with keynote speaker Reinhilde Schoonjans, Senior Officer at the Scientific Committee and the Emerging Risks Unit at EFSA. We are also happy to give you a short update on the EU-funded microbiome project that includes a mapping of regional competencies in this field, with speaker Sarah Lidé from Medicon Valley Alliance.

    The MVA Microbiome Network
    Our ambition with the MVA Microbiome Network is to create opportunities for microbiome researchers from industry, academia, and health care to meet and collaborate.

    Joining the network is free of charge but is limited to Medicon Valley Alliance members. However, non-member organizations and companies are welcome to attend one network event to evaluate if joining the network is relevant. If so, becoming a member of Medicon Valley Alliance will automatically allow you to join the microbiome network.
