Welcome letter

Following the success of EU-ISMET4 in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 5th European Meeting of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (ISMET) will take place online from 13th to 15th September 2021.

We invite you to participate in this three-day meeting and make it memorable together with many other scientists working on microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) in academic and industrial organisations in Europe and worldwide.

This meeting will highlight the latest breakthroughs in microbial electrochemistry research and applications of bio electrochemical systems, covering topics from fundamentals to scale-up processes, electro bioremediation, electromicrobiology, resource recovery, environmental sustainability of METs and among others.  To this effect, we will address the different aspects and scientific disciplines needed for the study of microbial electrochemical technologies, such as electrochemistry, biology, environmental sciences, biotechnology, materials science, design or process engineering. Furthermore, as METs are becoming more mature, we will devote for the first time a session to their commercialisation and environmental sustainability and another one to their associated social aspects.

The event will begin with the traditional ISMET workshop and it will be followed by the conference, which will include sessions of 40-min with keynote presentations from renowned scientists in the field, oral presentations and poster sessions.


We are very pleased to host EU-ISMET5 and we look forward to meeting you all in September 2021! 

On behalf of the local organization committee: Sebastià Puig, chairman of the EU-ISMET 2021.
