Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas

Research Centre

The Spanish National Research Council is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain

and will participate 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. The Biological Research Centre (CIB) is a public funded national research institute that belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). At the CIB´s Department of Environmental Biology, we are devoted to advance the understanding on how living organisms, plants, animals and microorganisms, interact and respond to their environment. Organisms are studied on every scale, from molecular to whole-body level, and using multidisciplinary experimental approaches.

Team role and expertise in the project:

CSIC will mainly participate as co-leader (together with BIOP) in the metabolic R. eutropha engineering and bioreactor development for PHA production within the microbial factory MF 2. CSIC will have a minor role in modelling, data monitoring and control strategy definition as well as products, microorganisms, materials and plants durability assessment in the integrated phase. Finally, CSIC will be active on the exploitation of results as well as on dissemination, communication and training tasks.
