Rendez-vous de Concarneau 2022

Thursday Septembre 29, 2022 in Brest as part of the SeaTechWeek

& Friday September 30, 2022 at the Marine Station for the 12th edition of the Rendez vous de Concarneau

Where Industry meets Science in marine biotechnology

The international symposium "Les Rendez-Vous de Concarneau" takes place every year at the Concarneau Marine Station. It is intended to be part of a continuum between the fundamental research developped within the laboratories concerned and the applications of this research in marine biotechnologies. The symposium brings together a group of experts from the world of fundamental and applied research and industrials with a link to the maritime field with multidisciplinary and complementary skills and aims to provide technology and knowledge transfer between European skateholders.

For this 2022 edition, we will focused on biomimetics on maritime transport during the session on Thursday 29 September as part of the SeaTechWeek at Brest: "Les Rendez-Vous de Concarneau invite themselves to Brest". The 12th edition of the "Rendez-Vous de Concarneau" will be held on Friday 30 September at the Marine Biological Station of Concarneau. The meeting at Concarneau will be focused on biomimicry and biomaterials with a visit of two structures with a bioinspiration project in Concarneau.
