LRC among Lighthouse Projects at the Annual Congress of the Biotechnology 2020+ Initiative
The Annual Congress Biotechnology 2020+ took place on October 4, 2018 at the Fraunhofer Forum Berlin. This year's host was the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The motto of the congress was "Biological Transformation: Cutting-Egde Technologies in Biomanufacturing". The focus was on the interface between biology and engineering sciences. Interdisciplinary cooperation between these two disciplines is an absolute prerequisite for the success of the LRC and is truely realised in the LRC. The four science organisations in Germany were each represented with an introductory lecture. As a representative of the Leibniz Association, Dr. Vito Valiante, head of the junior research group 1 of the Leibniz Research Cluster, presented the achievements of the LRC in session 1 "Lighthouse Projects".
