Behind the scenes: first Annual MultiBioPro Project Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden

The camera was a constant companion at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm: from 16 to 18 October 2013 the MultiBioPro consortium gathered for their 1st Annual Meeting, which was accompanied by a professional camera crew. On location of the get-together the crew shot interviews and sequences of the meeting for the MultiBioPro promotional film. The First Annual Project Meeting thus became an exciting event for the consortium members not only scientifically.  With regards to this, the next steps to be taken to implement some of the recent scientific breakthroughs into polar and tobacco tree were discussed in the consortium. Overall, the meeting was a success in finding new genes and tools to boost the crop plants for biorefinery purposes and in the promotional work. We are therefore looking forward to a rewarding 2014.
