Networking meeting in Norway - FEBRUARY 18-21th 2013

Organised by Pôle Mer & BioTechNorth on

Marine Biotechnologies & their industrial exploitation

In parallel to the 6th international conference BIOPROSP

Marine Bioprospecting from cold marine environment

BioTechNorth is an emerging biotechnology cluster of enterprises and R&D organizations, which cooperate closely with regional funding and development actors (triple helix). As bioactive molecules and compounds from Arctic marine resources form the basis of activities for the majority of the cluster members, BioTech North serves as a marine biotech cluster. The majority of BioTech North’s enterprises are active within life science applications and markets. To date the cluster contains around thirty organizations from both the private and public sector.

The vision of BioTech North cluster is to be the leading center for research and commercialization of marine bioactive compounds from the Arctic.

Further information :


The travelling and working session concerns the industrials and research actors working on marine biotechnologies on the whole value chain targeting different markets such as healthy food, pharmaceuticals, health, cosmeticals and new emerging markets such as biomaterial, biorefinery, speciality chemicals, energy, etc.

All the actors working in marine biotechnologies are concerned by the working meeting in Tromsø, from the marine biomass through the different processes (extraction, processing…) to the exploitation on the different targeted markets…
The meeting is organized following the expression of interest of the members of Pôle Mer (Sea Innovation and Business Cluster ) and several contacts with BiotechNorth that have been facilitated through existing contacts with Sintef, French Ambassy in Norway and the French-Norwegian Foundation.

Aim of the meeting is to give the opportunity to the SMEs and enterprises and labs to meet the members of the BioTechNorth network working on marine biotechnologies in order to formalize common interests on marine biotechnologies and support emerging collaborative and bilateral projects among the actors on marine biotechs and their industrial exploitation.

The meeting will be organized regarding the opportunity of the BIOPROSP 2013 conference that the industrial and labs consider as a good opportunity to travel to Norway and meet the actors previously to the conference and potentially during or parallel to the conference. Each participant is free to participate in the conference or not, and fees of the conference remain charge of each participant.
The travelling and meeting session dedicated to Pôle Mer and BIoTechNorth is supported by the French-Norwegian Foundation to encourage scientific research and industrial development. Cooperation has been validated between French Government and Kingdom of Norway to foster this objective and a cooperation agreement has been signed between the Pôle Mer and the French-Norwegian Foundation on November 2008, 13th to support promoting and communication actions on a collaborative approach. Furthermore, Pôle Mer is member of the Management Board of the French-Norwegian Foundation who animates a few actions:

  • Networking French and Norwegian enterprises and technical centers and labs

  • Direct or indirect funding to common R&D projects

  • Organization of common workshop or bilateral meetings

  • Exchanges among researchers and important people

Further information:
The participants will be composed by representants of Pôle Mer (Pôle Mer Bretagne and Pôle Mer Paca), research centers and enterprises.
