With the theme ‘all microbes for a sustainable future’, the Hellenic Scientific Society MIKROBIOKOSMOS invites all those involved in research in the field of Microbiology, especially young researchers, to participate in the 10th International Conference of MIKROBIOKOSMOS which will be held in Larissa from 17 to 19 September 2023. The aim of the conference is to bring together a multidisciplinary audience of leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results in the field of Microbiology.

INTOMED partners will be presenting the project’s results during a dedicated session on Monday 18 September 2018. The plenary lecture will be delivered by Sharon Zytynska.

The session will feature:
