Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas
The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and participates to the ENGICOIN project via the Department of Environmental Biology of The Biological Research Centre, where living systems are studied on every scale by multi-disciplinary experimental approaches.
Team role and expertise in the project
CSIC mainly participates as co-leader (together with BIOP) in the metabolic R. eutropha engineering and bioreactor development for PHA production within the microbial factory MF 2 in WP 5. CSIC holds a minor role in modelling, data monitoring and control strategy definition in WP 9 as well as products, microorganisms, materials and plants durability assessment in WP 9. Finally, CSIC is active on the exploitation of results as well as on dissemination, communication and training tasks.
