Spring Seminar, 11-13 May 2011, Garmish-Partenkirchen - Report


green

 

The Alps Bio Cluster spring seminar (11-13 May, 2011) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen was organized as a 2.5 day workshop for international experts in the field of green biotechnologies.

 

Objective:

Besides information exchange and presentation of newest scientific results, it was aiming to the setup of two project proposals that offer today’s solutions for tomorrow’s environmental problems.

 

Outputs

Two members of the green biotech focus group are in charge of the coordination of these two groups:

  • a project group will focus on the removal of nanoparticles in urban environments through plants
  • the other one aims at improving the waste water treatment plants in order to enhance the quality of water before being released to the environment

 

The green focus group

Also in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the green biotech focus group had its first official meeting and the members took the opportunity to contribute their knowledge and expertise to the groups working on the project proposals. Information on administrative matters and funding opportunities was provided by representatives of the GründerRegio München and the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment.


The importance of personal contact between key players was enlightened by the fact that during the spring seminar not only ideas for the actual project proposals but also for common projects in the future were gathered – projects that keep the environment in the Alpine space worth living.
