« Connecting technological innovations to
healthy microbiomes along the food chain : challenges and opportunities »
November 24th & 25th – Beauvais (France)


This scientific meeting aims to share recent advances on the understanding of microbiomes interactions from soil to animals and their resilience to a changing world. The interdisciplinary nature of the exchanges between academics and industrials will strive to identify knowledge gaps, technical hurdles, new approaches, and research cooperation for promoting beneficial interactions across the food chain from agriculture through manufacturing to health.
