With the theme “Exploring the innovate thinkers for Biotech Industrial Revolution”, the BIOTECH 2017 will be an arena for researchers, Bio-technologists, Bio scientists, Policy makers, young individuals and industry experts to come together, share experiences, discuss research findings and acquire the desired knowledge for practical exercise.
BIOTECH 2017 will enable everyone to experience more networking opportunities with over 200 conference participants from more than 30 countries, great insights from world reputed keynotes, technical sessions with extensive knowledge, high quality conference experience specially designed by Innovate conferences and the opportunity to discover Australia under great hospitality.
The conference will provide a forum for interaction among attendees on Biotechnology, Biotech engineers, Biotech Scientists, Recombinant DNA technologists, Biotechnology Professors and other bio –tech industrial leaders. It will create an interface among professionals, academicians and experts in the fields of Biotechnology.
This global meeting will assemble the world leaders in the expanding fields related to the isolation, research and development of DNA techniques. We are all acutely aware of the growing crisis associated with biotech industry. Thus it is timely that this meeting will enable you to meet and discuss critical issues.
The present efforts to hold the Innovate Biotech 2017 Conference in Brisbane, Australia is based on our decision to involve Global academic faculty members, Biotech representatives and students. In this mega event in Brisbane, representatives in both industry and academia work with us to create a more interactive association in the field of Biotechnology & Industrial Revolution.
The Innovate Biotech 2017 Conference is a hub that covers the core aspects of Biotechnology including “Animal Agriculture, Food Innovations, Fermentation technologies, Genomics and Proteomics, Healthcare and pharmaceuticals”
