Lorie Hamelin was invited, along with key French biotech researchers such as Etienne Paux, Etienne Ruppé & Fayza Daboussi, and key private stakeholders such as the CEO/CBOs of Da Volterra & Valneva to discuss the issues, challenges and opportunities from the field of biotech.

“It was a privilege to participate in these high-level discussions on a research field that is so interconnected with the sustainable bioeconomy strategies we want to develop. To succeed in this – and in the greater challenge of staying below 1.5°C, I am absolutely convinced that we need to integrate the best ideas of a variety of research fields, so we can achieve a high degree of system efficiency, minimize environmental impacts as well as the use of fossil carbon”, says Lorie Hamelin.
