The Marine Biotechnology ERA-NET aims to get a better overview of the existing interactions between the industry and academia, with the particular goal of identifying needs and gaps in such interactions.
Therefore, a questionnaire will be circulated between June and July 2014 to consult the ERA-MBT stakeholders on following groups of questions:
• General questions
• Technical Transfer Practice and Policy
• Funding schemes and marine biotechnology specific funding issues
The aggregated results will be analysed and used for the purpose of increasing awareness in industrial development environments about the potentials within marine biotechnology. ERA-MBT will further strive to develop mechanisms and tools to reduce or eliminate identified bottlenecks and barriers for a successful development within the area.
