    SFER 2019 Symposium, Rheims, France

    TRAFOBIT members David Ayrapetyan and Frans Hermans visited the SFER 2019 Symposium in Reims, France, dedicated to the bioeconomy with the main purpose to establish important connections with the French Pôle IAR biocluster. David Ayrapetyan’s study will be focused on this biocluster to provide insights on the multiscalar processes during the cluster development. In addition to the networking activity, the TRAFOBIT members also presented their current research related to biocluster types and trajectories.
