MARBLES is part of the AIMS cluster of four research projects funded under the Call ‘FNR-11-2020: Prospecting aquatics and terrestrial natural biological resources for biologically active compounds.’ Funded €30.7 million by the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, the four projects are focussing on the harnessing of natural compounds to discover their potential in medicine, food, agriculture and cosmetics.

The cluster was formed to explore common challenges, activities and to optimise synergies, adding value to each project and to the cluster as a whole. The cluster will work together towards common goals by means of working groups, workshops and meetings as well as data sharing and overall collaboration.

The four cluster projects are Algae4IBD, InnCoCells, MARBLES and SECRETed (AIMS).
