11th Hellenic Polymer Society International Conference, which will be held in Heraklion Crete, between November 3-5th, 2016.
This series of Conferences, which started in 1987, has brought together researchers from academia, research organizations and industry and has been established as the most important national conference with significant international participation in the areas of polymer synthesis, characterization, manufacturing, processing and end-use applications. The scientific program will feature plenary/keynote lectures, invited talks, and oral and poster presentations.
For the conference, MEGARA will represent GRAIL with a poster presentation of our project.

Vertech Group (VTG) assisted the 5th International Conference in Social LCA held at Harvard University (Cambridge, USA) from 13-15 of June, 2016.
This International Conference is the largest event in this field, and the only one that focuses specifically on quantitative and systemic assessment of social impacts and progress in supply chains and product life cycles. Attendees leave with an increased understanding of how to apply Social LCA in their work and an increased ability to be change agents in their industry. During the event, VTG had the opportunity to disseminate and share the main GRAIL’s objectives focused on the social analysis of the project, being one of the first worldwide initiatives to applying this methodology in the biorefinery of glycerol valorization field.

Roberto Horcajada -Inkemia IUCT Group, project coordinator of GRAIL- will have a presentation at the BIOLATAM 2015 event in Chile on Tuesday 17, November 2015 (09:00–10:30).
The theme of his presentation is about bioeconomy and industrial biotechnology: The economic model of the future and examples of this industrial reality in Latin America. “White biotechnology includes basically all sectors except agriculture and health. It provide solutions in many areas such as chemical, food technology, environment and energy, among others. The current roundtable gives an overview of the great opportunities that white biotechnology offers with particular focus on Latin America in development of biofuels, bioplastics, biodetergents and food additives.”
Hosted this year by Chile Biotech, ProChile and Asembio, the conference is already gathering strong European support and is expected to draw an even bigger audience of engaged life science professionals.
