European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology

18.11.2019 - 20.11.2019

esib has already established itself as one of the biggest biotech conferences in Europe and an international platform for industrial biotechnology in multiple contexts. The event not only covers science but also deals with industrial needs and hopes, economic demands, funding resources or political aspirations and still leaves space for networking and recreation. It encourages all protagonists of industrial biotechnology to think outside the box and in new comprehensive dimensions.

In 2019, the guiding thread of esib is „NEXT GENERATION BIOPRODUCTION". This time the event is dedicated to two focus topics: „Bioproduction in the Sense of Bioeconomy" and „Advances in Biomanufacturing and Upcoming Biopharmaceuticals". What are the new promising trends in science and industry? What are the upcoming issues from a political point of view? What are the upcoming challenges in the sense of bioeconomy and in biomanufacturing? How can society benefit from innovations in this field?

To answer these questions, the esib is uniting major contributors to European industrial biotechnology under one roof to learn from celebrated experts, executives and entrepreneurs, to get new inputs from politics and funding agencies and to develop profitable ideas with prospective partners. We invite you to seize the opportunity to discuss vital questions and encouraging topics and to be on top of new insights and trends.
