Microorganisms are allies: Microbial biodiversity preservation, exploration and valorisation for a sustainable future
Implementation and Sustainability of Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure for the 21st Century (IS_MIRRI21) is a three-year project funded under the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission. IS_MIRRI21 is a scientific project that aims to establish a pan-European research infrastructure called Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure (MIRRI) as a sustainable entity.

This webinar is meant to show what sustainability means and how microorganisms play a role in this process. The webinar is an impactful short info-session on the concept of biodiversity, its relevance and how humans use culture collections to preserve it.

The one hour webinar will be presented by partners and experts from the IS_MIRRI21 project with background in microbiology and biotechnology who will convey the messages based on their field and professional experiences. The event will be a combination of presentations, quizzes and videos with dedicated sessions for the audiences to ask questions and clear doubts.

The webinar is open to all! If you are a student, teach, parent, guardian, educator or just a microbe enthusiast, the session will be an eye opener to the world of sustainability, biodiversity and preservation of microbial life.
