MicrobiomeSupport goes World Microbiome Day! 

This year World Microbiome Day will be all about sustainability and how microbiomes are impacting our health, food, plants, animals and our environment in general. The diversity of microbiomes holds a big potential to contribute to healthy ecosystems, sustain food systems and improve our health. 

Inspired by this, MicrobiomeSupport partner AIT Austria Institute of Technology is hosting an online event together with EIT Food on 29th June 10:00-12:00 CET. The event “Let’s ACTinEITFood: Microbiomes and Our Food System” will showcase the potential of microbiomes in plant primary production, animal health and food processing and it will highlight best practices and identify opportunities that microbiomes present. You can rest assured that there will also be room for an interactive networking session and stimulating discussions.
