From the 26th September to 2nd October 2016 the fourth edition of European Biotech Week will take place along with events across four continents – America, Asia, Europe and Oceania: a week of events dedicated to the biotechnology sector.
Biotecnomed, launched a decade ago in Canada, came to Europe in 2013 through the will of EuropaBio – the European association of biotech companies – on the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA.
The event aims to inform a wide and varied audience about biotech and its various areas of application and to celebrate the key role that these technologies have in improving quality of life. A rich programme of events is taking place across Europe: seven days during which you can embark on a fascinating journey exploring technologies that use living organisms such as bacteria, yeast, plant and animal cells, or parts of them, for the development of products and processes that can be used and applied in various fields: from therapy to diagnosis, from food to industrial processes, through environmental clean ups to renewable energy.
Italy itself will be the main player in this edition with more than 40 events from the north to the south of the peninsula. Among the most interesting are the IFIB 2016 reports, – the Italian Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bio-economy scheduled in Vicenza from 22nd to 23rd September, organised by Assobiotec – Italian Association for the development of biotechnology – with Innovhub-SSI e CUOA.
The event’s objective is to define the state of research projects in the field of industrial biotechnology with the aim of strengthening the Euro-Mediterranean network in this area and promoting partnerships between companies and research centres. During the forum, EEN (Enterprise Europe Network) is organising the EEN Biotech and Bioeconomy Partnering Event. The event offers the opportunity to meet potential partners in one to one pre-arranged meetings in order to establish new opportunities for cooperation in research, technology transfer and business.
