Marine-derived bio-actives and their nanoformulation into high-added value products

Workshop with the projects AMROCE and Tardis


Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel
Registration deadline

SINTEF Ocean invites to a workshop where two international projects (AMROCE and Tardis) meet to present their achievements, show results, discuss challenges and meet researchers and industry working with the same or similar issues

Both projects focus on antimicrobial properties of ingredients and technologies leading to creation of platform of novel antibiotic-free antimicrobial products.

Everyone who would like to participate in the workshop, please send a "registration" e-mail to Rasa Slizyte () by 8th of September.

Date: 13th, September 2023

Time: 10:00

Venue: Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel (Kjøpmannsgata 73),
