The 1st International Bioenergy and Environment Congress (I-BE-C) « From Photosynthesis to Biotechnology » will take place in March 2021 (the dates will be confirmed soon) in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance, France, in the « Cité des Énergies », in the new building of BIAM (Biosciences and Biotechnology Institute of Aix-Marseille).
The Institute is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 7265) CEA – CNRS – Aix-Marseille University which is interested in the responses of living organisms to environmental constraints and the mechanisms of energy bioconversion and production of high added value molecules. It also develops biotechnologies aimed at preserving the quality of the environment or producing biofuels. The « Cité des Énergies » was born in the context of the technological maturity of R&D projects.
The inauguration of the new Research & Development building of the « Cité des Énergies » is an important step for the international scientific community working in the field of low-carbon energy. To celebrate this event, CEA Cadarache is pleased to invite you to this first scientific meeting, developed with the support of many partners from the « SUD » « Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur Region ».
I-BE-C 2020 will cover several fields of fundamental and applied research ranging from light harvesting, CO2 acquisition and assimilation, biomass and hydrogen production, or lipid metabolism in plants or microalgae (Chlamydomonas, Nannochloropsis…).
Recent progress in enzymatic and microbial fuel cells will also be described. All this topics will be presented and discussed by leading scientists from all over the world.
We are focused to introduce the latest achievements. The conference provides you with endless opportunities to network with fellow attendees and get exposed to new ideas.
The event is open to confirmed researchers and students. Also industrials can present their last developments and sponsor the event. Feel free to contact us.
