A week-long webinar series, hosted by the Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM)


With the UK hosting the COP26 summit this year, SfAM's ECS Committee are hosting a free week-long webinar series focused on the role of microbes in climate change and why microbiology research is so important to a sustainable future.

Abstract submission is now open and SfAM are calling for a wide range of abstracts.


Abstracts should address the broad topic of climate change and sustainability, but this can be anything ranging from applications in biotechnology - such as bioremediation and carbon capture, to developing more efficient ways to brew a pint and make a burger. They would also want to hear from researchers investigating the effects of climate change on the microbial diversity of our planet.

Maybe you hadn't even considered the potential impact your work may have on climate change until today and are feeling hesitant. Well, if this is you, then put the self-doubt aside and submit your abstract now as SfAM would love to hear from you. Let them help you reach a wider audience and build crucial contacts in your field.

Submit a short abstract of your research by 13 September.

Event format

To improve accessibility of this webinar series, speaker presentations will be available on the SfAM website during the period 18 - 21 October.  Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions which will be answered on 22 October at 10:00 (BST) when we host a live panel session with the speakers. 

Cost and bookings

SfAM members and non-members can register for free now via the event page.
