Dear Esteemed Colleague,  

The primary objective of this meeting is to facilitate dynamic discussions regarding the challenges and gaps in microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) mitigation within the broader MIC community. Our overarching goal is to promote cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration, encouraging the exchange of knowledge of the most significant advancements in MIC Mitigation, encompassing the entire spectrum of Diagnosis, Monitoring, and Mitigation. Beyond this, we aim to catalyse innovative, sustainable, and environmentally friendly strategies for combatting MIC and translating them into practical real-world applications.

We cordially invite you to participate in this event and seize the opportunity to showcase your products and services to our attendees. We would greatly appreciate your involvement, join us on this journey of exploration, collaboration, and transformation, and together, let’s shape the future of MIC Mitigation!

Your support matters. By contributing, you not only align with our cause but also gain access to a host of attractive benefits. Through your generosity, we can:

• Reduce fees for delegates.
• Support young researchers with attracting student fees.
• Keep our website and new domains up to date.
• Ensure robust marketing and promotional activities during the event.

Seize this opportunity to make a meaningful impact and be a catalyst for positive change in the field of MIC Mitigation. Your support is invaluable, and we look forward to welcoming you to Lisboa for this unique event.
