EVENT FULL - The next generation of biocatalysis for industrial chemical synthesis & Industrial Biotechnology for Europe - 3rd December 2013
The BIONEXGEN project consortium is delighted to invite you to two sequential events, showcasing Europe’s leading developments in Industrial Biotechnology to mark the end of its 3 year FP7 supported activities.
The first event ‘The next generation of biocatalysis for industrial chemical synthesis’ has an unprecedented line-up of presentations from some of Europe’s leading, business-focused, academics in addition to poster display and exhibition and networking area. This will attract academic and industrialists from across the biotechnology, chemistry and engineering disciplines in addition to those keen on understanding the dynamics of successful EU led collaborative research.
Immediately following the technical event the evening session ‘Industrial Biotechnology for Europe’ will highlight the importance of IB for the chemistry-using industries and explain how, through the use of European Commission funding, the ‘valley of death’ can be navigated bringing success to large businesses and SMEs alike. This free session will attract business leaders and policy makers in addition to being open to those attendees from the earlier technical event.
These events will:
Crowne Plaza, Brussels Airport
Leonardo da Vincilaan 4
BIONEXGEN is a flagship project within KBBE Activity 2.3, with the goal to develop the next generation of biocatalysts to be used for eco-efficient manufacturing processes in the chemical industry. Having benefited from a total project budget of over €10m.
The research leading to the results of BIONEXGEN has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme ([FP7/2007-2013] [FP7/2007-2011]) under grant agreement n° .
