Why LS9

Within the European Research Council, the code LS9 identifies the panel devoted to scientific research in the domains of applied life sciences and biotechnology: agricultural, animal, fishery, forestry and food sciences; biotechnology, chemical biology, genetic engineering, synthetic biology, industrial biosciences; environmental biotechnology and remediation.

We decided to use this code to define our Interlab Group as we share the same founding principles of the ERC: research quality should be judged using the sole criterion of peer-reviewed excellence, independent of political, geographic or economic considerations and we encourage ourselves to think big, and push for ambitious interdisciplinar projects in frontier research.
