The EBB project will celebrate its fourth general assembly on October 8, 27 and 28. The event will be held in a completely virtual way, due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A total of 12 partners from the Atlantic Area will join this event, which will be also attended by members of the extended family of EMBRC.
A tour will be carried out through each of the project’s work packages, reporting on the progress made since the last general assembly in Bilbao (Spain), in November 2019, and focusing on the work that remains to be done before the project finishes.
A handbook on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) best practices will also be presented to the EBB community. This handbook will contribute to the improvement of the compliance with the ABS framework by EBB collections, and will serve as a reference handbook for the EMBRC community in the future.
In addition, the completion of several deliverables will lead to the presentation of a number of EBB products that will be capitalized in the near future, hence increasing the visibility and impact of EBB.
