Establishment of the In Vitro Meat Consortium
The In Vitro Meat Consortium was established at a workshop held at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences June 15, 2007 (see meeting report). It is an international alliance of environmentally concerned scientists striving to facilitate the establishment of a large-scale process industry for the production of muscle tissue for human consumption through concerted R&D efforts and attraction of funding to fuel these efforts.
The consortium is currently led by an interim steering committee with a specific mandate. The interim phase will end with the consortium’s first international symposium April 9-11, 2008, where (i) the consortium’s organizational structure will be determined, (ii) the scientific and industrial challenges will be examined and defined, and (iii) strategies will be consolidated.
