Final conference of the COST Action

 COST Action TD1102 Photosynthetic proteins for
biotechnological applications:
biosensors and biochip

7-9 October 2015

CNR Headquarter, Rome, Italy

PHOTOTECH 2015 : Towards a photosynthesis-biobased economy is the Final International Conference funded through the COST Action TD1102.

The Conference will cover basic and applied aspects of exploiting photosynthetic microorganisms or their photosynthetically active pigment-protein assemblies for the production of bio-opto-electronic devices, a new scientific and technological field with significant industrial and social impact in support of a bio-based economy. Scientific sessions will address, but will not be limited to, fundamental knowledge on photosynthesis, biosensors, biofuels, biophotovoltaics, bioelectrochemistry, biohybrid solarcells.

The purpose of the conference is to showcase achievements of our Action and explore future opportunities. The programme will include also a Management Committee meeting, Working Group sessions and an Early Stage Researcher session. In addition to our invited speakers, there will also be numerous speeches selected from submitted abstracts.

Participants may be eligible for reimbursement of their travel/accommodation/subsistence expenses, under the standard COST guidelines (please consult p. 20-23 of the Vademecum here ).

We look forward to meeting you in Rome!
