Xavier Domingo, project partner and researcher at the Omics Sciences Unit of Eurecat, attended, in representation of GLOMICAVE, the first external Stakeholder Synergy Meeting organised by FindingPheno project and celebrated in Copenhagen, Denmark, last 27th of October.
The meeting was an invite-only event that brought together hand-picked professionals from academia and industry to discuss the problems and barriers involved in microbiome analysis or sustainable food production, and how computational multi-omics analysis can contribute to overcome these barriers. During the event attendees could participate in an interesting discussion with huge audience interaction, promoting potential future collaborations.
Representatives from other European projects and initiatives also participated in the meeting, including HoloFood, ELIXIR Food and Nutrition, PROMICON, EcoStack, EXCALIBUR, ROOTPHENOBIOME, Cargill and Novozymes.
The FundingPheno project, funded under the same call as GLOMICAVE, has the objective to create an integrated computational framework for hologenomic big data, providing the tools to better understand how host-microbiome interactions could affect growth and other outcomes.
