The last 9-13 June took place in Valencia (Spain) the 7th congress of European Microbiologist, promoted by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) and the Spanish Society for Microbiology (SEM). Established in 1974, FEMS is now an active and diverse federation of 53 European learned societies that includes around 30,000 professionals who are committed to advancing microbiology for the benefit of society. Located in 36 European countries, around half of these professionals are early career researchers, and the remainder include industry scientists, established academics, educators and campaigners. The Spanish Society for Microbiology (SEM) hosted the meeting.
This meeting put in scene an excellent joint scientific programme covering many disciplines and relevant hot research topics in microbiology: antimicrobial resistance and infections, food microbiology, sustainability, climate change as well as other fundamental topics in microbiology were covered. With more than 5,000 scientific presentations Pedro Gonzalez, Microomics CEO and SEM member, assisted to this strategic meeting, and took the opportunity to present some of his own scientific research and network with with collaborators.
