The European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster (EMBRIC) is designed to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation from marine Bio-Resources. EMBRIC aims to promote new applications derived from marine organisms in fields such as drug discovery, aquaculture selective breeding and cosmetics and bioenergy. At the same time, EMBRIC tries to facilitate technology and knowledge transfer and provides access to its various infrastructures to foster innovation in marine biotechnology and promote the blue bio-economy.
