Fabio Fava, born in 1963, is Full Professor of “Industrial & Environmental Biotechnology” at the School of Engineering of University of Bologna since 2005. F. Fava published about 240 scientific papers, 170 of which on medium/high IF peer-review international journals of industrial and environmental biotechnology. He has 5733 overall citations, a H-index of 46 and an i10 index of 123 (Google Scholar) along with 180 papers quoted by Scopus. He is actively working in the fields of environmental, industrial and marine biotechnology and of the Circular Bioeconomy in the frame of a number of national projects and collaborative projects funded by the European Commission. Among the latter, he coordinated the FP7 collaborative projects NAMASTE, on the integrated exploitation of citrus and cereal processing byproducts with the production of food ingredients and new food products, and BIOCLEAN, aiming at the development of biotechnological processes and strategies for the biodegradation and the tailored depolymerization of wastes from the major oil-deriving plastics, both in terrestrial and marine habitats. He also coordinated the Unit of the University of Bologna who participated in the FP7 collaborative projects ECOBIOCAP and ROUTES (on the production of microbial and biodegradable polymers from different organic waste and food processing effluents), MINOTAURUS and WATER4CROPS (on the intensified bioremediation of contaminated waste- and ground- water and the integrated valorization and decontamination of wastewater. coming from the food processing industry and biorefineries), and ULIXES and KILL SPILL (on the development of strategies for intensifying the ex situ and in situ bioremediation of marine sediments contaminated by (chlorinated)hydrocarbons and microplastics and the isolation and industrial exploitation of microbes from such contaminated matrices). Dr. Fava served and is serving several national, European and international panels, by covering the following positions:
• Italian Representative in the Horizon2020 Programme Committee of Societal Challenge 2: European Bioeconomy Challenges: Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and inland water research" (European Commission, DG RTD) (2013-);
• Italian Representative in the "States Representatives Group" (SRG) of the Public Private Partnership "Biobased Industry" (PPP BBI JU) (Brussels) (2014-); he is chairing the SRG since October 2018;
• Italian Representative in the BLUEMED WG of the EURO-MED Group of Senior Officials (EU Commission DG RTD and Union for Mediterranean) (2017-);
• Italian Representative in the initiative on sustainable development of the blue economy in the western Mediterranean the "Western Mediterranean Initiative" WEST MED, promoted by the EU Commission (DG MARE) in close cooperation with 10 countries of the area (2016-);
• Member of the "Working Party on Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Converging Technologies" of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD, Paris) (2008-);
• Chair (2011-2013) and currently Deputy Chair of the "Environmental Biotechnology section" of European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB) (2013- ).
Finally, he is the scientific coordinator of the International Exhibition on Green and Circular economy ECOMONDO held yearly in Rimini (Italy)
