IS_MIRRI21 virtual events: Matchmaking for Horizon Europe opportunities and MIRRI membership
Implementation and Sustainability of Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure for the 21st Century (IS_MIRRI21) is a three-year H2020 project that supports the implementation of Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure (MIRRI). MIRRI (https://www.mirri.org/) is a pan-European research infrastructure made up of 50+ member organisations including academic institutions, microbial Biological Resource Centres (mBRCs), Culture Collections (CCs) and experts from 11 European countries. MIRRI’s services and offers are supplied through the resources and expertise of its members to induce and sustain transnational cooperation and coordination in research and innovation within the sectors of Life Sciences and Biotechnology.
In its present capacity, MIRRI holds over 600,000 strains of microorganisms and microbiological resources, over 70 different types of services (including training, education and consultancy offers) with more than 30 workflows and has more than 300 direct participants and beneficiaries in the organisation. MIRRI has a special focus on the domains of Health & Food, Agro-Food, and Environment & Energy and intends to meet the demand for resources, data, research facilities and expertise in these domains squarely.
Whether an expert, a Member State, an academic institution or a culture collection, MIRRI offers its members the opportunity to be part of a large and dynamic laboratory as a whole and to share and exchange knowledge, provide services, gain visibility and play a unique role in the European scientific research and innovation landscape of Food, Health, Agriculture, Energy, Environmental Sciences and more. MIRRI’s membership is open to a range of stakeholders in the innovation communities across the world.
In view of exploiting MIRRI’s resources through collaboration with other RIs in Europe and Latin America to advance innovation and research in biosciences, these two events have been set up with the aim of presenting opportunities to bring innovation actors in Life Sciences and biotechnology to the same table. In synergy with RI-VIS, a Horizon 2020 funded project designed to increase the visibility of European research infrastructures (RIs) to new communities in Europe and beyond, IS_MIRRI21 partners and innovation actors from Research and Development (R&D) frameworks in Europe will present funding opportunities for joint collaboration in the above mentioned domains and how to become a member of MIRRI’s network.
