This international-level conference will strengthen the position of international research on marine lipids in order to address broad scientific questions, ranging from cellular-level to marine ecosystems functioning, will stimulate the development of international collaborative projects and push the boundaries of knowledge on marine lipids and their applications. This will be crucial in the light of the recent increasing importance of Blue Growth.
The sixth edition of the EMSEA annual conference will be hosted by Newcastle University.
