EMBL Conference: Biological Solutions for the Global CO2 Challenge

03 June 2019 - 04 June 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre,
Meyerhofstraße 1,
Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Successful reduction of atmospheric CO2 levels to pre-industrial levels is among the most pressing current challenges for scientific innovation. Given the scale of its impact on the global ecosystems and socio-economic implications, innovative solutions are urgently needed at the chemistry as well as biological front. The EMBL conference “Biological Solutions for the Global CO2 Challenge” will bring together scientific leaders, industrial players, as well as policy makers to discuss how synthetic biology and metabolic engineering can contribute to sustainable CO2 capture and conversion.
