NON-CONVENTIONAL YEASTS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BIOPRODUCTS

YEAST4BIO brings together experienced researchers and stakeholders to unravel how non-conventional yeast can be implemented in the Biotechnology industry

Know more

Yeast4Bio (Non-Conventional Yeasts for the Production of Bioproducts) is a Science and Technology Network financed by the European COST programme, Action Nº CA18229.

This Action brings together an innovative group of researchers with the combination of skills and experience to unravel how non-conventional yeast can be successfully implemented in a biotechnology industry. Besides, the Action gathers European top scientists in the field and thus become an important pillar worldwide.

Join this Action

It is possible to participate in an ongoing project. This is why we speak about the ‘openness’ of COST Actions. There are different ways to participate in COST Actions: As a Management Committee (MC) member. As a working group member. As a participant in Action activities. COST Actions provide opportunities to get involved in activities through training schools, short-term scientific missions, workshops, conferences, etc. If you are interested in participating in the Yeast4Bio COST Action you can send your application following the link below.
