2-days workshop, May 6 and 7, at Tshwane University of Technology and NorthWest University, respectively.
Microorganisms are abundant, present everywhere with enormous diversity. They are scientifically most interesting with high potentials to address many global societal challenges. The workshop will gather scientists with common interests in: a) Microbial diversity & evolution, b) N2-fixation & sustainable agriculture, c) Soil microbial indicators for monitoring impact of climate change on crop production, d) Waste- & polluted-water treatment & bioremediation by microorganisms, and e) Chemical & fuel production by microorganisms. The main aim of the workshop is to establish a joint South African – Sweden research and education network to address microbial diversity and biotechnology for a sustainable future.

Keywords: Microorganisms, Diversity and evolution, Sustainable food and agriculture, Bioremediation, Renewable chemicals and fuels.
