ASSEMBLE Plus is funded!
The MBA is a partner in the The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), the primary infrastructure representing the major European marine biological laboratories. The EU has just announced that ASSEMBLE Plus, a major EU Horizon 2020 proposal coordinated by the EMBRC that addresses the INFRAIA call "Integrating Activities for Advanced Communities" and which is aimed at increasing access for researchers to marine biological laboratories, has been recommended for funding. The project has now entered its negotiation phase. The MBA will play a significant role in moving this initiative forward over the next 4 years.
