It is time to meet again in Faro to present and discuss the outcomes of EMBRIC and our future plans. In the light of the discussions that are taking place in the European Commission regarding  bioeconomy and more specifically, blue bioeconomy, we would like to focus this event on regional blue bioeconomy and the EMBRIC impact.

The General Assembly will be organised in two days (September 12th and 13th) where WP leaders will share the evolution of their work and the consortium will hear presentations and round tables of invited speakers.
