Open Meeting
Lisbon, Portugal • February 12th-14th 2020
This meeting will be the first open conference run by Cost Action CA18113, with presentations from all the areas represented in the Action. These will explore fundamental aspects of microbial responses to low pH and include applications in food and drink, biotechnology, and health care. A focus of the meeting with be on synergies and cross-overs between these diverse research areas.

Core Group &
Working Groups meeting
Rome, Italy • October 22nd-23rd 2019
This two-day meeting hosted by Sapienza University of Rome (Grant Holder of the Action) provided an opportunity for selected working group members to come together both as small groups and as a single large group to further plan, develop, and undertake the activities that will address the goals of Grant Period (GP) 1. In addition, the Core Group met separately to manage the progress of the Action activities to date, and to discuss the planned showcase meeting in Lisbon in February.

This COST Action is broad in its technical and scientific scope, as its central aim is to bring together people working in quite diverse fields but with a common scientific interest: namely, the understanding and exploitation of the responses of micro-organisms to low pH.

EuroMicropH

Understanding and exploiting the impacts of low pH on micro-organisms

This COST Action is broad in its technical and scientific scope, as its central aim is to bring together people working in quite diverse fields but with a common scientific interest: namely, the understanding and exploitation of the responses of micro-organisms to low pH. These organisms in this context include bacteria, yeasts, and other fungi. This topic is already being studied in considerable depth and has many important practical applications in a number of diverse sectors; however, these sectors traditionally do not communicate well with each other. A new forum for communication will be highly beneficial both for scientific progress and, importantly, for the applied fields in which this topic is important. These include the microbiology of food and drink, many aspects of industrial biotechnology and bio-processing, and clinical and veterinary treatment of infections in a time of increasing antimicrobial resistance. Through a combination of Working Groups, workshops, Short-Term Scientific Missions, and dissemination activities, plus open conferences, this Action will (a) aid increased understanding of the details of how micro-organisms detect and respond to low pH (b) ensure that technical developments being made in one field are rapidly translated into other fields (c) leverage the many different areas of expertise that exist across Action members and (d) ensure, through participation and dissemination, that these developments reach as wide an audience as possible, including pure and applied scientists in the Inclusiveness Target Countries.

Areas of Expertise

Biological sciences: Microbiology

Industrial biotechnology: Food microbiology and Bioprocessing technologies

Clinical medicine: Prevention and treatment of infection by pathogens

Other engineering and technologies: Food science and technology
