Over the last four years, COST Action FA1006 has established a pan European network of researchers working on different aspects of plant natural products (PNP) and metabolic engineering. With a large number of Activities, the community has elaborated the status quo of PNP research and identified target areas for improvement of PNP metabolic engineering. 

The final conference will represent a cross-section through all the Activities and build a platform to showcase major achievements of PlantEngine. 

According to the structure of the COST Action, sessions will reflect the Working Group topics and highlight achievements from within the WGs Activities. Additionally, an industry session will give the status quo of commercialization of PNP engineering and technologies. Current collaborative EU research projects will be presented as well as prospects for continuation of the successful network discussed.

This conference will address a wide scientific audience and we invite participants to submit abstracts for either short talks or posters, reflecting the research agenda of PlantEngine and related topics. Attendance is open to everybody and we especially encourage early stage researchers to attend and present their work.


We look forward to meeting you at Sorrento.
