Last 28-29th of May, the historic and beautifully restored city of Dresden hosted our 3rd General Assembly at Micro4Biogas. Researchers and representatives from all partners gathered to share their updates and advancements made over the past year, giving our project the last boost before our final results.

After three years, we celebrated our Annual General Assembly last month in Dresden, Germany, coordinated by our partners from The Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). With now less than one year of the project ahead of us, the meeting served as a unique opportunity to coordinate and exchange ideas for the final tasks ongoing. We are all happy to report a successful development of all tasks, with outstanding scientific findings such as the new bacterial strain found to be essential for biogas production. But there was more than science involved during these three days. 

All partners were invited for a visit to the Claußnitz biogas plant, hosted by our partners from AEV Energy GmbH. The visit consisted of a guided tour around the facilities, which gave a full overview of the industrial needs in terms of biogas production. It served as an excellent discussion point to share challenges and ideas for the development of our biogas models. These were later discussed in an exceptionally productive brainstorming session about the business models and exploitation of the results of the project, led by ABS International (ABSINT). 

In addition to the productive sessions and plant visit, all partners had the opportunity to explore the charming city of Dresden. We enjoyed learning about the culture and history of this town in a shared guided tour and spent some quality time together as a team.  

Overall, Micro4Biogas can account for a very successful general assembly at both the research and networking levels. It provided an encouraging energy boost and fostered deeper collaborative relationships for all project partners for this last year of work. We extend our gratitude to all participants for their valuable contributions and look forward to continuing this journey of innovation and sustainability. 

Stay tuned for more updates on our project’s progress and upcoming events!
