Deadline for applications is 23:59 CET on 15 May.
The Summer School aims to foster a mindset of translating cutting-edge technologies from the research bench to scalable industrial applications. It will focus on state-of-the-art in vitro and in vivo technologies that can be used to engineer microbes for a range of novel industrial, environmental, and healthcare applications. In many cases these applications are designed to replace existing energy intensive processes that currently relay on non-sustainable substrate and energy sources.
The Summer School will appeal to post-doctoral microbiologists who see their future careers in academia, collaborating with industry on technology and product development, or in industry as researchers, industrial microbiologists, or project managers.
