For the first time in two years, the interim meeting went presential,

During the 1st training session organised by TQC on 4th November, the Portuguese Institute of Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) showed the different methods to assess the bioactivity of ingredients. This action was intended to familiarize the partners with techniques and processes that can be carried out at lab. IPMA’s presentation was supported by a series of video tutorials developed by them in the framework of SEAFOOD-AGE project.
Now, these videos are available through SEAFOOD-AGE
Youtube channel for any researcher or technician interested in these techniques:
project meeting (18M) was celebrated via videoconference on the 3rd of November
2020. Thirty-three participants followed the presentations and participated in
morning, the technical packages were addressed, while transversal topics were discussed
progresses were presented in this meeting after one year and half of collaborative
work, being rewarding to see that the different aspects of the RTE product are
taking shape despite the restrictions to access the labs.
The 1st training session went successfully virtual on 4th November
Even though this kind of action was supposed to be face-to-face in order to
get familiar with techniques and processes that take place at a lab or pilot scale,
the partners involved were successful preparing very comprehensible and high
quality home-made audiovisuals.
IIM-CSIC presented the production of ingredients. IPMA showed the different methods
to assess the bioactivity of ingredients. ICTAN explained the production of the
RTE product, INL presented a demonstration of the microbial kit and IRMRS screened
a video about the seaweed culture and harvest.
