Where Ideas Grow

MOBILIsE Launch Event: Molecular Bioengineering - Challenges in Industrial and Clinical Translation
27th January 2023 | Auditorium Mariano Gago, i3S, Porto

The MOBILIsE project will organise its launch event to present the project and its scientific strategy to the community. The event is dedicated to discussing the challenges faced by researchers working in Molecular Bioengineering when translating their results to industry or the clinics. To enrich the discussion, we will count on the presence of several national and international experts across different sectors (Funding Bodies, Regulatory Agencies, Academia, Industry, Clinics). i3S researchers who have been down the road of translation will also share their path and the challenges faced during the process. 
We are deeply honored to have the Portuguese Minister for Science, Technology, and Higher Education, Professor Elvira Fortunato, joining us at the event.
It would be a privilege if you could join us and we look forward to welcoming you at i3S.
