    MVA Microbiome Network meeting – March 2020

    Welcome to the Medicon Valley Alliance Microbiome Network and our 5th meeting!

    Regulatory perspectives on probiotics and the commercialisation of microbiome research

    The microbiome community in the Medicon Valley region is vibrant and growing. Medicon Valley Alliance, together with one of our members – McNeil AB – welcomes you to the 5th MVA Microbiome Network meeting. The topic for this meeting will be the regulatory framework for probiotics and the commercialisation of microbiome research with a keynote by EFSA about risk assessment and microbiomes. But you will of course also hear pitches from different MVA member companies about their experience with this, as well as an update on the EU-funded microbiome project that includes a mapping of regional competencies in this field, and there will be large time for networking.

    17:00-20:00

    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.
