SymbNET twinning led by IGC

The European project is focused on symbiosis research

The consortium SymbNET – “Genomics and Metabolomics in a Host-Microbe Symbiosis Network”, brings together scientists from three European countries and five partner institutions: Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica NOVA in Oeiras, Portugal, Kiel University, Kiel, Germany, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, and the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.

SymbNET main focus is to promote knowledge transfer and collaborations through programs of Researchers and Staff visit exchanges, collaborative projects, sponsoring the use of new technologies, organizing scientific meetings, workshops, PhD Summer Schools, and a European meeting on Host-Microbe Symbiosis.

There will be actions targeted at Early-Stage Researchers to promote their research, training, mentoring, and networking, ensuring gender equality in participation. For example, thematic courses, target group-specific mentoring and various networking activities.

The first initiative is already running and it is available to all students interested, find out more here.

The European Union is supporting the project within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program for an initial period of three years.
