17th European Congress on Biotechnology (ECB) 2016 Krakow

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee, it is our great plea­sure to invite you to Krakow, Poland and to the 17th Euro­pean Biotech­nol­ogy Con­gress orga­nized by the Euro­pean Fed­er­a­tion of Biotech­nol­ogy tak­ing place on July 36, 2016.

    Our last bien­nial meet­ing, held in Edin­burgh in 2014, was one of our most suc­cess­ful Con­gresses on biotech­nol­ogy and we hope to har­ness the excite­ment gen­er­ated within the long his­tory of this meet­ing, which was orig­i­nally estab­lished in Switzer­land in 1978.

    The Con­gress will bring together the inter­na­tional sci­en­tific com­mu­nity and many seg­ments of the biotech indus­try to pro­vide a plat­form for exchang­ing ideas in biotech­nol­ogy and its appli­ca­tions. It is antic­i­pated that up to 1000 sci­en­tists, indus­tri­al­ists and aca­d­e­mi­cians from around the world will attend this con­fer­ence to share their lat­est dis­cov­er­ies and to learn about novel prod­ucts and breakthroughs.

    Through­out the Con­gress, you will be able to inter­act with busi­ness lead­ers, investors, trade exhibitors and pol­icy mak­ers and dis­cuss the issues of IPR, reg­u­la­tory aspects and the bioeconomy.

    Pro­gramme in the Krakow Con­gress will include:

    • Ple­nary lec­tures by stel­lar speak­ers who are lead­ing biotech­no­log­i­cal developments
    • 25 sym­posia that span all colours of biotechnology
    • A fully-​integrated Euro­biotech pro­gramme high­light­ing top Cen­tral Euro­pean biotechnology
    • Invited speak­ers who are world lead­ers in their fields
    • Satel­lite events on the open­ing day of the Con­gress, Sun­day 3 July 2016
    • 200 short talks selected from sub­mit­ted abstracts for sym­posia or satel­lite events
    • Trade exhi­bi­tion
    • Poster ses­sions located close to the Trade exhibition
    • Oppor­tu­ni­ties to hear about devel­op­ments in the Asian Fed­er­a­tion of Biotechnology
    • High­light events that focus on cur­rent chal­lenges and controversies
    • A Pub­li­ca­tions Work­shop to help young biotech­nol­o­gists pub­lish their work in lead­ing journals
    • An “Open Space” event to bring inno­v­a­tive ideas to the atten­tion of industry
    • Meet­ing point with refresh­ments through­out the day
