European Biotech Week: Celebrating Innovation
The European Biotech Week celebrates biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week that took place in 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history.
This momentous occasion opened the door to a better understanding of the world we live in both for scientists and for society.
To provide you with an example, DNA triggered crucial discoveries and deeper knowledge on genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and stem cells.
Biotech entrepreneurs were able to translate this knowledge into applications for many sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.
Biotech associations are key in helping to maximize the potential of biotechnology. In Europe, the National Associations Council, hosted by EuropaBio, represents 17 national biotech associations that together represent over 1,800 small- and medium-sized biotech companies and organisations.
In 2017, the week takes place between 25 September and 1 October.
It brings together farmers and other stakeholders from Asia to learn about plant biotechnology through first-hand experience by visiting plant biotech commercial farms and R&D biotech facilities; and interacting with farmers, scientists, media and policymakers.
The FX Program has been held annually since 2007. The 9th FX Program was held Mar 2-7 in the Philippines. The CropLife Asia, CropLife Philippines and the Biotechnology Coalition of the Philippines have organized the nine editions of the FX program.
Plant Science Congress is the premier event that brings together a unique and international mix of experts, scientists, researchers, specialists and lookup students to exchange and share their experiences and research outcomes on all elements of Plant Science & Ecosystem. It additionally provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researches, practitioners and educators to present and talk about trends, the most latest innovations, and issues as properly as practical challenges encountered, and options adopted in the fields of Plant Science & Ecosystem.
The theme of the conference is around, “Exploring the future advancements in the field of Plant science and Molecular Biology”. Presentations concentrate no longer solely specific to Plant Science however additionally crop and forestry research, Arabidopsis, biofuels, Plant Root and Tree Root System, Plant/Agriculture – Industrial By-products Entrepreneurs Investment B2B.
Of course, we additionally prefer to attain existing followers of plant science social media accounts, and to extend the global reach. Finally, this will be a superb possibility to discover as new science communication tool. We are now looking for people to contribute, and to help us make vegetation ‘go viral’!
