EMBRC-ERIC opens for excellence in marine biology and ecology research

On 19 June 2018, the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC-ERIC) celebrated its adoption as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (EMBRC-ERIC) and the onset of its operational phase.  “EMBRC-ERIC is a milestone for services to science furthering our knowledge of marine life and its implications for the human conditions.” – says Ilaria Nardello, the Executive Director.

Hosted by France and based in Paris, EMBRC-ERIC is a pan-European Research Infrastructure (RI) for marine biology and ecology research, providing state of the art facilities, technology platforms and advanced services to study marine organisms and ecosystems. Among its objectives, it is to enable new technologies and marine biological models to further our investigation capabilities for life-science breakthrough discoveries, and to support a modern approach to long-term marine ecological monitoring efforts. “EMBRC ERIC is a truly multidisciplinary effort and a driver in the development of blue biotechnologies, including at regional level, supporting both fundamental and applied research activities for sustainable solutions in the food, health and environmental sectors.” – said Mr. Jean-David MALO, Director of Open Innovation and Open Science, European Commission - DG Research and Innovation.
